Welland: Robin Williamson - Green Party 2011

The most exciting part of the Green platform in Niagara is increased support for public transit including rail service. As you may know I have a weak spot for bringing passenger rail service back to the city where rail and water meet.

Passenger rail service is one of the top issues for South Niagara. The ride between the closest rail station and Niagara College is similar to going from Toronto's Union Station to York University, and the only direct option is by cab.

I'd like to see if he breaks from the pro-legalization party line. The support for smoking and marijuana is one of the controversial elements of the Green party platform that I think is misguided. Drugs and drug related crime in Niagara are a problem, and legalization near the border will only hurt local businesses that are still recovering from cross-border business problems related to new security procedures.

The original Robin Williamson article has been replaced with this hands-off interpretation.
