If there really is a majority I seriously doubt they are that poorly organized. I believe after thinking about it, most people realize its just part of the general change in cities continent wide. I just don't think there is as many people against LRT as you think there are. I am sure you are hoping there is more. I'm also sure there a few people who really don't like LRT because it represents a transformative change that they will have trouble dealing with personally and professionally.

With other rapid transit projects I have been involved with, you see a lot of suburban based home builders up in arms because they just realized there main business and product type is being sidelined by changing times and tastes. One owner who is in charge of a big company in the York Region market told me that, many builders are just not equipped to change and will not be able to handle the new designs required. Creating denser neighborhoods/communities with different designs and types of homes is simply beyond their building experience.
