"just identifying the fact that they constitute a majority vote on any issue"

Not only that but they have a lot less residents in their wards, so each suburban vote has more weight than an equivalent urban vote.

For why suburban voters should support LRT, that's easy, when downtown Hamilton is full of new investment, new residents and new jobs driven by LRT, that means more money in the tax coffers, less cost for social services, and less chance your suburban house will get "ringed" by even more suburban growth that adds to your congestion.
