McHattie needs to do a better job emphasizing the difference between the higher upfront capital costs of LRT and long-run cost-savings and fiscal improvement for the City from lower-operating costs and greater potential for redevelopment, i.e. tax-base growth, from LRT.

Would be nice if Fred were doing that too, instead of trying to have it both ways by promising more study. We'd be having a much more intelligent debate if both pro-LRT candidates were making the case. Instead, Fred's non-committal position is enabling Clark's FUD, and McHattie is criticiized for not doing a good enough sell job on his own.
