Hi Ryan: I am not sure if you can convince me that what you say is indeed fact. I am not against the LRT, as from a environmental perspective, our leaders should of been thinking about this strategy, long time ago.

There may be some small businesses opening up but would they pay a living wage, provide benefits and so on, I doubt that, so again, lifting those from poverty is not so clear and defined.

One also has to look at people's perspectives about those who are marginalized. Since social housing is a real issue in this city, how do think this will become a political issue, since cuts to social housing have gone on for years. The current conditions for those in many social housing are deplorable. Shelters are not the answer either, as this process can be very intimidating and callous.
