HAMILTON PUBLIC WORKS EMPLOYEES TAMPERED WITH LRT ROUTES?

A logical, straight route through the city - Hamilton LRT

Farley Hammerton.  January 26, 2013.

The citizens of Hamilton were shocked by The Hamilton Spectator’s coverage of 32 public works department employees under investigation.  The apparent misuse of company time and property was a shock to the majority of people who hold city workers in high esteem.  The road maintenance crew have an especially flawless reputation, that until recently, was untouchable.

As HammerInTheNews private investigator uncovered, things may have been much worse than expected.  “I used several of my inside people to get a hold of these documents.  By the looks of it, these employees planned LRT stops in front of their favourite pubs, their parents’ houses, and even a friend’s house on the escarpment.”

Though no one could be reached for questioning, our staff economist and mail boy says the extra stops would have cost the city upwards of $45,000,000.   The impact of such a change would not only slow down the Light Rail Transit, but would jeopardize the likelihood of Hamiltonians getting LRT at all.

As several councillors are cooling to the idea, given the annoying ‘wooshing’ noises light rail makes, an extra $44 million and an illogical route could push them over the edge.

While we all wait for the City to decide the fates of these employees, perhaps it’s time to discuss extra stops at popular taverns.  I know, for one thing, they would have one vote in this office.

  1. I totally agree that their should be stops at the best pubs. It would be so much easier to just stumble out of the pub and get directly onto the bus that to have to navigate a busy street. It would probably lower the traffic accident incidents, which in turn would reduce police presence and thus lower the police budget. Sounds like a win win situation to me!

    • Yeah..or we would have drunks stumbling into the path of trains and getting killed. That would be a good outcome too, right? /s

      • People getting so drunk that they are just staggering into the roads are probably going to get hit by a car anyways…my first thought was “hey, make it more convenient for people to get to and from drinking establishments so they don’t end up doing something stupid like drinking and driving.”

  2. Wow, such a false posting. This amounts to spam without any proof. The official site shows no update like you ‘propose’ http://www.hamiltonrapidtransit.ca/index.php/project-information/maps/ and certainly not one that looked like it was done in MS Paint. Then you link to articles that have nothing to do with this article’s claim. This is trolling at it’s finest. Oh yeah, let’s not forget the self-advertising of “If you’d like more breaking news, try googling “hamilton public works tamper LRT” – there’s a fascinating article about it!” which of course links back to this article which shows you nothing. Sad, sad sad. But I bet you won’t even approve of this message. So I’ll make sure that it goes to all the right places too 🙂

  3. There should also be a stop outside Hamilton borders where we can drop off Eyagee and his band of not so merry men. This would raise Hamilton’s collective IQ as it is doubtful that they would be able to find their way back.
