Toronto's not a good example for you to be using. Their transit system has slowly fallen apart over the past 30 years. Boston is a much better example though. They built much of that city around the backbone of their rapid transit system and continue to even this very day. Hamilton may need a higher tax rate in order to get the transit system up and runnning, but then there is absolutely no reason why rates can't be capped. The spinoff development of LRT will more than fill city coffers to make up for 1 or 2% of taxes.
