Perhaps if there were some private leadership (Chamber of Commerce, downtown BIA, Real Estate people) that could organize the downtown developers, business owners and prospective condo residents and current residents to advocate for LRT and explain how it could accelerate downtown developments, and increase the city's tax base much more quickly. Sell this fact to the burbs, explain that it will ease their tax burden. Most opposition seems to be hung up with cost. Benefits need to be explained and comparisons drawn to $500m for aerotropolis and nearly $400m for QEW HOV from Guelph Line to Trafalgar that does little.
