"With Brampton rejecting an LRT line through its downtown in October 2015, some Hamiltonians are hoping these unspent funds might move to Hamilton. "

"In a 10-0 vote Monday evening, Brampton council killed a staff proposal for an LRT tunnel under Main St. that would have cost between $410 million and $570 million. Instead, council decided to move forward on one of two alternative LRT routes north of Steeles Ave., either partially up Main St., then east to a new hospital under construction, on to Queen St. and over to the downtown GO Train station, or up Kennedy Rd. to Queen St., then on to the downtown GO station."

Three-quarters of Brampton's MPPs are Liberal, and the Brampton mayor is a former Liberal cabinet minister. Five of five Mississauga MPPs are Liberal, and the mayor is a former Liberal MP. Somehow suspect that the resources will remain inside of Peel Region.
