My personal experience in Vancouver was that the Rapid Transit backbone ALRT was the engine that transformed the city. It was put in place by the Social Credit government as part of EXPO 1986 which had a transportation theme. The Social Credit provincial government in the mid 1980s was essentially what Harris PCs were in the late 1990s. The opposition to the train was immense. We heard all the same lies, queries, vitriol, and FUD that we are hearing today. You could take articles and speeches and replace Vancouver with Hamilton and you would think it was 2006 (even some of the haircuts are the same). So I have heard all the garbage before. The Main difference is that we have the internet today and Hamilton's media is disproportionately controlled by the advertising service called CHML and the deadline hacking Hamilton Speculum. The internet clearly has not been helpful as this potential tool for changing the world has become a retard amplifier. So what is needed is something or someone with power, or more nicely put a champion, to ram the B-Line LRT so far up the ass of Hamilton that its rails land in Dundas. In 1986 it was bullies like Hudak and Harris. Who would have thunk it?
