It sure looks that way. What probably ends up happening is Eisenberger comes up the middle to win, and we get 4 more years of talk and hope for LRT with no concrete decisions made by anyone involved. The big stall continues.

At this point, although I'm still hopeful for LRT, it appears that Rob Ford has poisoned peoples' opinions of what LRT actually is to the point that it's become a political 3rd rail. In the end, I don't care whether it's LRT, BRT, or they just decide to cut Hamilton out of rapid transit altogether. Just make up your minds and get on with it, whatever "it" is. Hopefully some of those hardened opinions begin to soften once Eglinton is up and running in 2020. By then it will be our kids' battle.

As long as they don't waste $5B building a highway to Mount Hope and waste a further $100B subsidizing the associated sprawl that will follow a new highway, I'm fine with a principled stand of "we just don't have the money". All this politicking and making the same non-announcements over and over again is getting tiresome.
