Lol, not sure how the last response is very relevant... I used to know someone who commuted from a long distance too, but the OP is commuting from Brantford.
While I would be inclined to suggest that you figure out how to live in Hamilton, to save the gas, Brantford is not very far. I'm from Brantford. It's a 20 minute commute... But thanks to all the idiotic drivers, especially trucks, the mountain is the slowest part of the commute in the morning because two transport trucks will ALWAYS go side by side, one at 90km/h, the other doing 95 km/h right beside it...
says thanks to mike_302 for this post.
