So I wouldn't say we are a "traditional NDP stronghold".

I would. It goes back, what, 10 years now? I'd say that's a generation, so that would be "tradition" in my book. The Cretien years were nearly 20 years ago now, and the area may have been Liberal before that. I'll have to look and see if there are any historical voting patterns we can use to determine, but you're talking semantics now, on what "traditional" means.

Also, contrary to what you may say, the mountain (and my area in particular) do stand to gain from LRT.

If the mountain will gain from LRT, how? There's no benefit to a household that doesn't ride it. I don't believe that these imaginary benefits the usual mouthpieces spout will actually come to anything (new businesses opening, expansion of existing ones, new developments popping up), and in turn increasing the tax base and then causing my taxes to go down.
