It was only after the meeting on Tuesday that I learned that 80% of the funding commitment will be used directly for infrastructure repair/replacement. That bit of info should be front and centre of the information campaign for LRT. So many LRT opponents have been going on about our crumbling infrastructure. Apparently our current repair deficit is 3.3 billion. The LRT would carve 800 million out of that number! That is massive! A full quarter of the total infrastructure deficit wiped out in one shot. In fact, the LRT itself should be secondary to this fact. We are getting 800 million in free money to repair pipes and cables and, on top of that, an LRT system.
