Show your support for the HMLRT

On July 8th your Brampton City Council will be making an important decision about whether to support the Hurontario-Main Light Rail Transit project (HMLRT).

In April, the Ontario Provincial government announced that it would provide $1.6 billion to fund the construction of the HMLRT. This fully funded surface route will run from the Port Credit GO Station to the Brampton (downtown) GO Station along the Hurontario-Main Street corridor.

As your Mayor I am fully supportive of this route and the surface alignment, however not all members of Council agree. If you support this route and surface alignment Council needs to hear from you. The Metrolinx and Provincial reports indicate this investment will act as the catalyst for economic growth and jobs in the downtown area and beyond.

I ask that you please consider attending the July 8th meeting at 7 pm at 2 Wellington Street West (Brampton City Hall), delegate Council and state why the HMLRT, and transit in general, is an important priority for Brampton.

IN ORDER TO PARTICPATE YOU CAN:

  1. SIGN THE PETITION IN FAVOUR OF THE LRT

  1. DELEGATE TO CITY COUNCIL ON THE EVENING OF JULY 8, 2015

*In order to delegate, just come to the Special Council Meeting for the LRT on Wednesday, July 8th, 2015 at 7:00 pm in the Council Chamber at Brampton City Hall. No special permission is required.

Your voice does matter, and you would be joining many other residents that will be coming forward and be heard.

I’ve enclosed a link to an editorial that I wrote which appeared in the Guardian and a number of Ethnic media newspapers:

Wednesday night is your chance to have your say about the future of Brampton.

Thank you,

Mayor Linda Jeffrey
