Question: What do you give to a neighbourhood that is sprawled out, difficult to get to, car dependant and crying out for a better-than-bus transit system?
Answer: Light Rail.
Somehow, with seemingly little effort and even less fanfare, Scarborough is quietly working through its transit related problems and sketching out its future light rail lines.
Thus far (although it's still early days) there appears to be little opposition to the scheme – and why would there be? Scarberians realize that if they are ever to be the city they claim they want to be, they must reduce their dependency on the car and install a workable world-class transit system.
For Scarborough, the decision is easy. Why, then, is it so hard in Hamilton?
