And yet, this is the same Public Works department that will be responsible for implementation and management of whatever rapid transit ends up in Hamilton. The department has subjected taxpayers to scandals, substandard design, substandard project execution, and mismanagement of resources.

So are we surprised about skepticism regarding this city's ability to effectively move to rapid transit within the constraints of the province's commitment to 100% capital funding? While I support the concept of LRT, it's clear that Public Works has got a lot of work to do to build confidence amongst the taxpayer base that they're capable of executing such a large scale project with limited cost overruns.
