Well, if you're only considering Canada then Calgary and Edmonton are the only cities that have actually built LRT (as opposed to skytrain), and they were similar in size to Hamilton when they were first planned.

In the USA, Sacramento has a population almost identical to Hamilton's, Charlotte is similar in size (750k) and Norfolk, VA has a population half of Hamilton's.

25 French cities have built LRT, and most of these cities are tiny (e.g. Dijon at 150k) compared to Hamilton and have similar population densities /wiki/Liste_des_tramways_de_France. But then I suppose that we have nothing to learn from their experience because they are 'European'.
