z jones >> You just choose not to see it because it's more fun to troll than to be intellectually honest.

Neither Jason nor Ryan have EVER explained how the LRT will make downtown Hamilton a better place to shop and/or live. They base their entire argument in favour of LRT on nothing more ANECDOTAL tales of other cities, never once mentioning that other cities have radically different investment tax policies and rely much more on the private sector for economic growth.

My question is an extremely easy one, how will transporting people downtown five to ten minutes faster make downtown Hamilton a better place to live and shop? That's all I want to know.

People already drive farther afield to avoid the downtown because of it's dearth of private sector offerings, so how will the LRT improve this situation?

How will the LRT make people with money want to live and work downtown? If the city set up the LRT to run to the sewage plant, would more people want to live and shop there as well? The LRT idea is a scam and Ryan/Jason's inability to answer my questions about it prove that.

The LRT is nothing but a waste of money.
