Dear Ward 1 residents
The purpose of this post is to account for my vote this past Friday, November 12, 2021, at a special meeting of Hamilton City Council to fill the ward 5 seat left vacant with the election of Chad Collins as a federal Liberal MP for Hamilton East- Stoney Creek. Mr Collins served as ward 5 Hamilton City Councillor for 26 years (1995-2021).
What is a Bicycle Boulevard?
Also known as “slow streets,” “quiet streets,” or “neighbourhood greenways,” bicycle boulevards are low volume streets that offer an opportunity to improve corridor safety by calming vehicular traffic for people living in the area, including people walking and cycling while improving the livability of the neighbourhood.

The City of Hamilton will launch an electric scooter rental program next spring. The project will run for 24 months as a pilot to allow the City to assess operations and safety features. The City will partner with the private sector, and all capital and operating costs will be the responsibility of the selected commercial operators.
Earlier this month, Hamilton’s Board of Health received an update on the city’s COVID-19 case count along with a forecast for COVID-19 conditions to December 2021. As reported in the news, there has been an increase in COVID-19 cases in Hamilton. In addition, the number of Hamiltonians who are fully vaccinated is below the provincial average. The re-opening of Hamilton and Ontario will result in increases in contact transmission. This situation, combined with a highly contagious Delta variant currently active in 95% of Hamilton COVID-19 cases, poses significant risks to the unvaccinated, including children under age 12, for whom there is no vaccination available, and the under-vaccinated. Individuals with only single-dose are under-vaccinated.
Any 4th wave will primarily be among those not vaccinated, including children under 12 years old and those under-vaccinated.
