A Smith, I don't think you understand the purpose of a government.

What it does is invest in things that do not generate a profit but will attract people and businesses to invest in the area.

The LRT itself will likely not generate a profit, but what they have demonstrated is that businesses invest around them. No one privately has the capital to invest in building the LRT itself, but once construction on it starts business will invest in the areas surrounding the stations because there is a greater likelihood of foot traffic.
