See, I don't see LRT as that massive a benefit to the city. Yes there certainly are pros and it will help, but I have to question the capacity for LRT to generate wealth beyond it's operating costs at this time, mainly based on one major criteria, lack of population and intensification. This biggest issue with Hamilton is a failing core, and running a LRT line is only going to make it a core with a LRT line going though it, and while you certainly will attract some businesses along the LRT line, typically retail to utilize the various stops, I just don't see rail access as major encouragement for more office based businesses, industry or as a tool designed to retain human capital. It strikes me as putting the carriage before the horse.
