Another concern that should be raised, is how is the Province going to pay it's Lion's share? Certainly when a municipality gets to dip into high level coffers, it's a benefit for that city, as the whole of the province shares the burden, and Hamilton's LRT is a small burden compared to what Toronto and Missisauga are looking for.

That still being said, our Province is in a lot of debt right now, where are they comming up with the money? Sure they can raise it a lot easier with the larger tax base and crown corps, but this is a concern that Ontario is going to have to deal with soon. I get that infrastructure upgrading in the best way for a province and country can attract investment, but at what point to the debt levels reach a point where getting that under control becomes the priority?

That however, I think is a debate for another more provincial based website.
