Mr. Meister says: "Your vision is not shared by the vast majority."

Well, considering the LRT Public Consultation Meetings were some of the highest-attended Public Info Meetings City Staff has ever had, along with the numbers published in the Rapid Transit Office's reports, I'm going to go ahead and say that you, sir, are the one who is out of line with the majority of Hamiltonians. They/We DO support it!

Detroit is as dense as Hamilton?!?! Where are you getting this info? Detroit has sprawaled out far worse than any Canadian city, as well as most U.S. Cities. Infact, if you look at most of Detroit's inner-city, you'd notice it's about as populated as Flamborough! Empty/Burned out houses in fields. GoogleMap it if you need confirmation.

Also, the fact that Detroit is even thinking about building their LRT along Woodward Ave (which is Detroit's 'main street') shows how much support there is for LRT in general... even in Motown (the 'Mo' means Motor, as in MotorCar)!

LRT will change attitudes about Transit in this City whether you want to believe it or not. You can easily ignore a bus, but you sure can't escape a beautifully modern Light Rail Train zooming by you down Main Street.
