thanks for the update Nicholas. I just read the report and it's very interesting. LRT would be an 8 minute shorter trip than BRT. That alone is HUGE. The spinoff in EcDev is really the key though. BRT can't hold a candle to LRT. If it could, all of these cities that have been building LRT systems would have stopped wasting their money and just gone with buses. People from Hamilton travel the continent and the world and ride trains in cities all over the place. Not buses though. They'll ride trains in Hamilton too, but not buses.

I hope the right decision is made. It's very rare for Hamilton to have such a huge opportunity at such a transformational project. Usually we're funding these sorts of projects in Toronto. It would be nice to build one here for once....maybe Toronto tax payers will actually have to chip in a little too. Gasp!!
