"Having said that, my prediction is that public transit will indeed get better. But that the world you envision...especially in the Hamilton area...will never come to pass."

What specifically is this goal that will never come to pass? If it's roads with zero cars and a transit modal share of 100%, you are correct. However the City's own objective of doubling the transit modal share, I believe, is easily attainable with enough investment.

Sure there's a car culture here. There's a car culture everywhere. China is a car culture too, with the rate that they're buying them. I agree with you that the cultural aspect is an impediment. However it is exceptionalism to apply that to Hamilton, but not to other North American cities which have set and attained ridership goals higher than ours.
