The point Ryan was making is that you can't argue on one hand that the project is going to be a failure ( see bobby2's previous posts ) and then turn around and argue that increased tax assessments as a result of the projects success will hurt people. Which is it - a failure or a success?

I've seen a lot of detractors use this 'throw anything and see what sticks' strategy and it needs to be called out.

Regardless, bobby2, feel free to argue your points any time. Just don't fall into what I'd call 'the debate club trap' where you feel that you can never change your position. Personally, when all of this started years ago I was ambivalent towards the LRT and just couldn't understand the passion people had for it. The more I educated myself on the subject, however, the more I could see its merits and understand the importance of not throwing away this rare opportunity.
