  3. There should be no problem in getting electric buses other than council! There is already a fund (I think $1.5 Billion) for electric buses. It's not to buy electric buses out right but to pay the difference between gas/diesel bus you would have bought vs the extra cost of electric buses. There are other cities that have already applied and are being delivered. I hate this issue of operating cost. No matter what you buy, BRT or LRT, you will have an operating cost.

The second shot only brings you to 98%. You can still be a carrier or worst get it and be asymptomatic and carry it for weeks without knowing it is infecting a lot of people. When vaccinated, if you get Covid, the vaccine will lessen the chance of being seriously sick, ending up in the hospital, on a ventilator or dying. Everyone still needs to wear them!

  8. Hamilton fire started about 5 or 6 years ago to install Federal Q type sirens. They now come on all new apparatus. They do sound like an old type of siren.
  9. The platform will stay in service somewhere until it is retired or replaced by another platform. It requires special/extra training so it would not work as spare or training vehicle.
