The problems with LRT are numerous . Only a fraction of the City benefits it,ie: only those on it's route! The old City has not gone through the financial pain that the burbs have with area rating property taxes the last 4 years. Before amalgamation, people chose to live in certain areas because of taxes, local governance, small town feeling! Trust me, they are not in the mood for higher taxes to pay operating, infrastructure, maintenance costs of a fancy transportation system that benefits only a small portion of lower old City residents! Do I sound like sour grapes? Try being retired like my wife & I & keep up with rising property taxes while our moderate fixed pension income stays stagnant! Since amalgamation, our property taxes have slightly more than doubled.
