Graham, good thoughts. I agree with you that our culture at city hall seems to lack the drive and urgency needed to beat out other cities when limited cash is on the table.
Although I think it's also a matter of priorities. Having said that, I have the utmost respect for the LRT team at city hall - they deserve massive kudos for getting us to the 'front of the line' on this issue. Now we need to claw for our money from the upper levels of government. Jill Stephens and her team have pushed this case very hard and very professionally over the last 4 years. If I remember correctly, it was just in the last few years that the city established a rapid transit office. They've done a great amount of work in such a short time.
