Christie McNabb joins Don McLean and Doug Brown to talk about the Frequent, Clean (electric) & Free Transit Campaign in Hamilton. This is a campaign organized by the Hamilton Branch of the Council of Canadians and the Hamilton 350 Committee to urge municipal candidates to commit to supporting the City initiating a study of the feasibility of bringing free fare transit to Hamilton.
As we look at ways to significantly reduce the catastrophic impacts of global warming, cities need to implement measures to encourage a large portion of drivers to use transit instead. Free transit could be a game changer in reducing motor vehicle emissions. Will Hamilton's new council start the ball rolling?
Transit Talk is a monthly feature on CFMU's Unusual Sources which is broadcast Wednesday's from 5:00 to 6:00pm.
