A Smith,

I asked this question of you on another thread which you have ignored so I am re-posting it here.

You asked,"The question to LRT supporters is this, why should taxpayers fund a system that will disproportionately benefit property owners who live near the line? If these people will be the prime beneficiaries, why can't they finance it, rather than taxpayers?"

To which I responded," I think your question is valid up to a point, however if we apply that thinking then why didn't the homeowners and property holders on Stoney Creek Mountain fund the Red Hill Valley Parkway?"

Can you please answer my question about the RHVP using your logic about the LRT.

Thank you.
