Maybe the reason businessmen ride public transit in other cities is because other cities have lots of businessmen.

Or maybe you're just making stuff up. There are tons of people that do business in Hamilton, especially downtown, unfortunately a lot of them are driving cars right now. Also we will never reach a point where there are more "businessmen" unless we make it more attractive.

Building an LRT won't make Hamilton better off. Neither will a monorail. Neither will a subway. The province isn't going to waste money on building an LRT in Hamilton before they build one in Toronto, so you'll have to find your own money (good luck with that). I think a BRT is more appropriate (i.e. cheap).

LRT, monorail and subway won't, but some how BRT will? I think you need to rethink that one. Also the province is on the record saying that it will "waste money building and LRT", so please come back with some facts instead of mindless, false assertions.

My main transit issue is lack of connectivity with the rest of the GTA. Solve that issue first because it would actually solve alot of problems for alot of people and it wouldn't cost much.

This is being solved, what do you think all the construction near LIUNA station is about? Please, before you comment, do 10 or 15 minutes of research (this site is very handy that way) before you spout off uniformed nonsense.
