Bratina wants the federal funding for the project reviewed as the Hamilton city council considers making a decision on whether or not to endorse the network. The city council may take a vote on June 16.
Federal and provincial governments have approved $3.4 billion for a 14.4-km light-rail line that would connect Stoney Creek to McMaster University. Three Stoney Creek councillors on the city council say they will vote against the memorandum of understanding on light-rail transit.
If a light-rail line is built, the city of Hamilton would only be responsible for the cost of operating it, which is projected to be $20 million a year. On June 14, University of Toronto Urban Planning Professor Chris Higgins said the cost of running a light-rail line would be half of running a rapid bus line. Some officials who are against the light-rail project are pushing bus transit.
Bratina wants to make sure project cost and funding is enough to meet the objects of the project.
