PxTl, I was thinking the same thing - the opponents I'm most worried about are the ones who are so cynical they're not willing to believe in anything coming from the city. I might feel the same way if I hadn't seen this all getting organized before City Hall jumped on board. Most of these people have rather simple complaints (routing, funding etc), and can be convinced. We just need to work a little harder.

As for those of whom Adrian speaks, they require much less work. I'm not a big fan of off-hand dismissals, but if their greatest feat is naming our city, I don't know what else we can offer up. I personally can't think of a better reason to support LRT than 'this is Hamilton, after all'.

As for the dirty, drug-infested, crime-ridden cesspool known as Amsterdam, I love it too. I'm really not sure that most people who whine constantly about how dirty our town is have travelled much. Paris, London, Amsterdam, Rome, Barcellona - these are not terribly safe places to be after dark. And yet, they thrive. It isn't about waiting until cities are safe and perfect to do something worthwhile - it's about doing it anyway.
