Hamilton Mountain: Candidates address your top 5 election issues
Listen to candidates square off on LRT, taxes, utility costs and more
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.
Click on the audio clips below to listen to candidates Albert Marshall, Javid Mirza, Greg Lenko and Monique Taylor square off on living wage, taxes, utility costs, LRT and more.
Some interesting snippets:
- Green candidate Greg Lenko is the only candidate to support a $15 living wage
- NDP Candidate Monique Taylor and Lenko both support LRT, while Liberal candidate Javid Mirza wants BRT and all day GO service. PC candidate Albert Marshall doesn't want LRT because not enough people will ride the system to pay for the operating costs, he says.
