Okay, so then why not save taxpayers $130 million and take some lanes out of Main St/King St so that it more resembles Oakville and Burlington's downtowns.

Why not spend $130 million to take two lanes out of King St and accomplish both reduced traffic and improved transit?

So if the area of the city that already has the most transit also has the worst economy, the logical conclusion from the city is to put even more transit in this area.

It would seem that downtown is not the area with the "worst economy" in Hamilton.

And spending $130 million on ONE issue (LRT) will ensure that other issues have zero funding.

Really? How did we manage to fund any projects after spending $500 million on the Red Hill then? You know this is a gross oversimplification.
