I am not in support of spending hundreds of millions of dollars on a separated highway because some commuters don't want to line up for 5 minutes at the 401. Will those commuters pay for the high speed rail that I want to ride between Hamilton and Toronto?

Why are highway building expenses accepted as a "given" while LRT unearths a bunch of tightwads screaming about cost?

This is a TON of money that the city simply cannot afford to spend. Their claim is that the overpass is required to service new developments in Waterdown. If this isn't the case, then why are they lying? ANd if they aren't lying then the development charges should cover this expense, not the rest of us.
