I know little about LRT and the proposal for Hamilton. But have been reading with interest. My suspicion is that North America is lagging quite a bit behind Europe in urban development, but we are following them slowly. Which means that downtowns will continue to intensify (and gentrify), while suburbia will be where people are forced to live. I suspect we need to look to a future where Boomers will want to live and play in our downtown. Demographics and rising oil prices both point to a time when mass transit will become dominant. I lived in London, UK for 4 years quite happily without a car, although must admit am far from being able to do that over here... yet.
