Because the Mayor is the one who has been vocal on this issue in council. The only other Councillor we've heard recently ring in on this issue was Lloyd Ferguson of Ancaster, a ward that has no plans to be connected to the LRT, and he seemed cautiously supportive.

The Mayor, on the other hand, has been on Bil Kelly's show making fun of the LRT advocates and defending Chris Murray's abrupt decision to pull the plug.

The Mayor is the vocal anti-LRT politician in council. It's safe to presume that, whether terminating LRT planning was the Mayor's decision or Murray's, the Mayor was aware of it and supported it. Iirc, the rest of the council was just as oblivious as the public (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Obviously we should be bringing pressure upon the rest of the council - I haven't even read any news about McHattie kicking up a stink about this, and he's not exactly known for letting this kind of thing slide...

But still, it looks like the Mayor is at the centre of this.
