I'm actually quite surprised the MSU hasn't gotten involved. I've never been a member myself, but as a former undergrad at Victoria, I seem to remember the student union being much more visible and willing to confront university, civic and provincial authority over matters such as this (it was the "left coast", of course).

An additional reason I'm surprised is that, if I recall, the MSU declared their support in principle for LRT, provided it served Westdale and the centre of campus.

I know how complicated these things can be, but it would be great to see concerned undergrads lobbying the MSU to take some sort of visible protest action here. Whether all of Hamilton can agree on this or not is immaterial - It would be in the best interests of the MSU politically to call the city and school to task over something that evidently interests McMaster students and faculty a great deal. This should be done as soon as possible. I'm not a Mac student anymore (and I've never been an undergrad here), or I would start sending some e-mails myself.
