Red Hill Valley Parkway Road Surfacing Cover Up In early 2019, the City of Hamilton received information regarding a 2013 friction report related to the Red Hill Valley Parkway.

The ielect community encourages all eligible electors to vote in the 2022 Municipal Election in Hamilton.
If you are a resident, owner or tenant of property in Ontario, a Canadian citizen and 18 years of age you can vote in Ontario’s municipal and school board elections.
During an election cycle, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for preparing the preliminary list of electors for each municipality and school board in Ontario. It is MPAC’s Municipal Property Assessment database of both property owners and tenants that is used to prepare this preliminary list, which aids in the preparation of the final voters’ list for Election Day.
You can add and edit your voter information on www.voterlookup.ca. This is an external site managed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) of Ontario.
Too often, great things in Hamilton happen in spite of our Mayor and Council, not because of them.
It’s time for change. It’s time for new and inspired leadership. For new leaders who are innovative, progressive, and informed. New leaders with a bold vision of Hamilton’s future.
When we vote in the next municipal election in 2022, let’s all vote for new leadership for a better Hamilton.
A Better Hamilton is...
Councillors who voted AGAINST $3.4 Billion for LRT in Hamilton Ontario
Hamilton City Council Scandals
These are the faces of too many poor decisions
We have a leadership problem that’s hurting our progress as one of Canada’s top 10 cities. The majority of our Councillors have each served more than a decade. Some more than 20 years. One, more than 32 years. Our current leaders have had their chance to make Hamilton the great city we deserve to be.
To achieve our vision of a better Hamilton for everyone, we need to change our leaders in the next election.
To help define a positive path forward, we looked at research that identified 6 Municipal Priorities affecting every Hamiltonian, no matter where you live, for how long, or how much you pay in taxes.
We looked at what municipalities across Canada saw as important areas of focus. And where they spend most of their money.
We also compared the 6 Priorities with the Strategic Priorities outlined by Hamilton’s new City Manager, Janette Smith, as well as the priorities defined by the Our Future Hamilton Vision.
Together, these 6 priorities spell i>elect. They’re interconnected, each impacting the other. i>elect is committed to electing new leaders who understand the importance of this interconnection, and work together to deliver the results Hamiltonians expect of their leaders and for their city.
Each one of us is the I in i>elect. Each one of us gets to cast a single vote in the next election for the person we think is best qualified to help build Hamilton’s future.
IELECT Hamilton is a grassroots, volunteer-run organization comprised of Hamiltonians from across the city that launched officially on May 22, 2021 with a full page advertisement in the Hamilton Spectator.
We’re a registered not-for-profit organization. We have three Directors – Graham Crawford, Ryan Moran and Craig Burley.
We’re a team-based organization with Standing Committees in Communications, Research, Volunteer Coordination, Media Relations, Fundraising, Website. We also have hundreds of volunteers.
We have no party affiliation, will not be running a slate of candidates, nor will we be endorsing any candidates in the next municipal election.
We are funded entirely by individual donations from members of the public.
Our Vision is:
New leadership for a better Hamilton.
We believe it’s time for change around the Council table. We believe long-tenured Councillors have had more than enough time to demonstrate their capabilities. We believe there is a citywide appetite for change given the number of scandals, poor decisions, lacklustre results, and a resistance for real change by our leaders.
