Ryan the most important sentence in your essay is the first one "I see high quality transit as first and foremost an engine of economic development, and only incidentally a transportation mode per se." It is YOUR Opinion, YOUR Vision and by the sheer number of essays you write and the huge amount of time you put into this website, which is dedicated in large part to that exact concept, shows how passionate you really are. You are a fanatic. You have lost all ability to see reality, all you see is your vision. Your vision is not shared by the vast majority of citizens in this fair city. Why do you continually try to push your ideas, your vision on every body else? This site could be so much more. A real place to exchange ideas and deal with real problems in an effective way. Instead it is thinly disguised personal propaganda site. Why not try to reach some sort of workable and affordable real solution? LRT routes criss crossing Hamilton simply is not affordable no matter how passionate you are about it. Detroit a huge city is building a LRT of something like 3.5 miles (5.6 KM)AND it is privately financed! this in a city with a population density 5 times as high as ours. Transit is all about area and density. I know you do not want it to be that way but, that is the way it is, it is REALITY.
