Earlier this month, CBC Hamilton asked you what election issues matter the most in Hamilton’s provincial election ridings, and almost 900 people have responded.

While it’s by no means an official survey, the results do give us a snapshot as to what issues matter to readers in each riding. CBC Hamilton has taken these results and is using them to shape questions for candidates.

Listen to Hamilton Centre candidates Andrea Horwath, Peter Ormond, Donna Tiqui-Shebib and John Vail square off on LRT, living wage, poverty and more.

Some interesting snippets:

  • Green candidate Peter Ormond is the only candidate to support a $15 living wage
  • Only PC candidate John Vail opposes LRT in Hamilton

1. Should Hamilton have a province funded LRT, BRT or neither?

2. What single action do you think is most important for your party to take to fight poverty if you were elected?

3. What infrastructure improvements would you like to see your party commit to in Hamilton Centre?

4.Should Hamilton adopt a living wage of about $15 an hour?

5. What role should the province play in spurring economic recovery in Hamilton?
