Some of the replies on here really blow me away. Our town suffers daily under constant calls for mind-bogglingly expensive boondoggle projects which hold mostly aesthetic benefits. Yet when a well-researched, popular and very likely to succeed project like LRT comes by, people dump all over it.

What makes LRT different? First off, it does something. It doesn't look a certain way, or help us get known for something in Toronto. As inspiring as it is, inspiration isn't much of a reason to spend $100 million on something. LRT has the potential to make a serious daily difference in the lives of tens of thousands of people. A serious difference in family finances, where people buy homes and the abysmal quality of our air. Investment would be nice, and a better image would be handy, but a megaproject must do more than those things to be worthy of this kind of funding in a time of crisis. And LRT does.
