Let's be fair here. Do the Liberals have any intention of actually funding an LRT here? They promised it in 2007 and as far as I can tell we are moving backwards. Sure they'll jerk us around like today and say Hudak will cost us LRT, but really they just keep it moving forward and keep it nebulous and funding their priorities in Toronto (where they are in an actual battle for seats).

Bratina has been a problem to be sure. If we had a leader that pointed out what Toronto has received per capita in transit capital funding and that Hamilton should receive funding commensurate with that, maybe we would be farther along and maybe we would get more citizens on board because of the fairness issue. Look at the Scarborough subway funding. Scarborough's population isn't that much more than Hamilton and if we got the same capital funding per capita (and from the feds too) we could build a LRT. The sad fact is, there will always be a project in Toronto that will get priority.
