Derek: American cities do not get amalgamated the way Canadian cities do so to compare you must take the metropolitan numbers. You really cannot believe that Detroit is less than 1,000,000 can you? I am basing my density numbers from the sites I accessed on line. If they are wrong them so am I. Detroit's population might be declining but many of the suburbs are growing. Your comments about razing neighbourhoods and relocating people are apt for Flint which has been devastated with the changes in the auto industry. By contrast places like New Haven and New Baltimore are growing.

Much of the LRT that is being built in the USA is not what is being proposed for Hamilton but rather more like GO Trains. Even those trains have a hard time competing with cars as can be seen by the state of highways leading into and out of Toronto.

The LRT proposed for Hamilton is just too much tax money.
