If you haven't already you should look into the Rapid Transit system the city was basically going to be given in the late 70s. True, it was an elevated train system. Actually it's the exact same system Metro Canada built in Vancouver, better known as the Sky Train. It was voted down by Upper James St. residents because they thought it would ruin their beautiful neighborhood. Which I believe now exists somewhere between the Wal*Mart and that hideous No Frills with the concrete retaining wall that was falling apart on to the sidewalk for about 5 years.

I think the LRT idea is inevitable if this city ever starts to get it's urban poop together. But a focus on fixing the traffic grid into something that respects the rights of pedestrians and neighbourhoods downtown first is probably the first step. Then throw down the rails.
