I was raised in Hamilton in the '50s now living in greater Vancouver. Please, do NOT go with "at grade" rapid transit. I have ridden on that system in Edmonton and it does not compare well at all with Vancouver's elevated Sky Train, Seattle's monorail, or Toronto's subway. Think of a high speed street railway with tens of level crossings interfering with vehicular traffic flow. Vancouver's system flies above the traffic, not interfering with it and as a bonus offers spectacular views of the city to passengers. A subway offers the same advantages without the view, out of sight, out of mind. As a bonus, tourists love it.
