Bob, your compromise of buying Toronto's ripped up streetcar lines makes little sense. Firstly, it would tie us in to their gauge and worse, their technology which is horribly outdated. Secondly, I can only imagine what the labour costs would be in order to achieve that. Would any money actually be saved? Any material savings would surely be spent on labour! Third, LRT is NOT streetcars. Toronto's rolling stock would be useless to us, and their tracks.. well who knows, I suppose the steel is worth some money but despite not being a rail engineer I am quite certain that the tracks in Toronto are not universally compatible with true current LRT rolling stock.

When you have a true compromise solution to present, feel free. Until then it does no good for any of us when you come on here with nothing but accusations about LRT supporters having some nefarious plan for personal gain at the cost of the rest of the city. If you truly believe that, you have not been reading any LRT evidence with an open mind of its potential to change the way we build this city.
