Hamilton area transit

This just in: the line might get extended to Eastgate within the current project budget, thanks to a promise from the provincial finance minister. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/726349...-eastgate/

Looks like that was enough to seal the needed support at this stage. This vote is sure to pass.

Well, I hope so, but I hate to see resistance like this getting them more.  I fear it will encourage further brinkmanship from other regions.

It passed, and with a healthy margin.

This wasn't a case of "resistance...getting them more." Eastgate Square was the terminus studied by the City of Hamilton (at Hamilton taxpayers' expense) for a number of years. The new terminus at the Queenston Traffic Circle was sprung on the city, and didn't have a lot of logic behind it. It would have meant a lot less utility for the route.

This probably still doesn't mean a done deal, knowing Hamilton. And we'll see how much can get done in terms of tendering before the next provincial election. But it's not dying tonight, so that's good.
