"LRT is a huge development magnet. It's been proven time and time again to draw tons of investment. Folks along that corridor don't need to worry about fewer people and business there. They'll need to learn to deal with a whole heck of a lot more."

Just like in Buffalo and Detroit eh Jason?

The only people who will use this white elephant to get around are people who currently ride the bus. What make you think that people will give up their cars to ride on this thing? What is the incentive?

As for development magnet? They said that about the GO station downtown and the only new development there in 15 years is the Chateau Royale condo (a lousy project by an unknown developer - I still don't think all of the units in that building have been sold). I use that station twice a day, and I still drive down from the mountain.
