I think you are spinning this a little too hard. The other way to look at it is that the province is being smart by backing out of a $1 billion commitment that depends on the actions of local politicians who clearly are not prepared to take those actions. LRT in hamilton looks like a really great project if you assume that council would do all the obvious things to make it work (such as expanding local transit, reforming zoning laws/development charges, ending area rating, etc...). But it is entirely unclear whether or not council will actually do these things, and on those grounds I don't think would be entirely scandalous if the liberals decided its a bad investment. There are other billion-dollar projects in the GTA that have less political uncertainty.
