From what I'm hearing and reading they aren't making two requests or asking the province to pick which request they would like to fund. They are packaging the bus improvements together with the LRT request for a total of something like 1.1 billion. My concern is that when the request is this large (and even 811 million was huge) and the project this extensive - what will the cost overruns be? And there will be overruns there always are. Can Hamilton foot that bill? Toronto's Spadina extension has gone 400 million over budget and the province will not bail them out. What if Hamilton is stuck with say 250 million in overruns? It would be a disaster. TO has a huge tax base, we do not.
