there were better proposals that could have done the same thing and not cost taxpayers tons of money in legal junk that's still going on, and not cost us what was one of the best hiking and biking destinations in Southern Ontario. We can never undo that.

I think it's important to repeat that. Too often the urbanists and environmentalists and whatnot of Hamilton get seen as loonies for opposing the RHVP because a high-speed connection between the East Mountain and the QEW was absolutely needed. The entire mountain desperately needed that connection, since the entire Linc/403 through Hamilton/Aldershot was unusably congested at rush-hour before the RHVP, not to mention Centennial parkway. Too often in the retroactive debate on this it gets lost that there were alternatives that would've made everyone happy that somehow got steamrolled in favour of building a continuation of the Linc blasting through the valley.
