Its quite clear, as you move about Hamilton, that it IS indeed missing 'something'. But to be honest, I'm not sure what that something is. And I'm definitely not convinced that building the LRT is going to be the answer. We don't even know what the problem is. We can see the symptoms (the horrible urban planning, the maze of one way streets, the crumbling infrastructure, the over-representation of individuals requiring social assistance of one form or another, the crappy downtown, vacant buildings) but we as a community can't come to a consensus about what the underlying cause of all of that is. And if we can't figure out what's causing the symptoms how can we honestly debate about whether or not the LRT is going to 'fix' anything.
