I love that they chose The Canadian Railroad Trilogy by Gordon Lightfoot as the musical lead in.

The spirit of the song, about collectively coming together to build something BIG, that benefits us all, is truly apt. You can almost feel the urgency of the mission to build out the line, so that the country can begin to reap the benefits of its completion.

There seems to be an increasingly large constituency of people who are able see this kind of vision, and how LRT in a modern sense could provide the same benefits to a city. A pan-urban connection that leads to increased prosperity on many levels throughout the city.

(I do hope they asked Gordo for permission. If not, perhaps he could be formally approached. Maybe he would put his voice behind the initiative. He certainly managed to capture the essence of the that coast to coast 'ribbon of steel' vibe.)
