I could see that approach being reasonable if the Mayor had campaigned on this.

If the mayor had stood on the stump and said "LRT is a stupid toy train" and people had voted for him anyways, it would be reasonable to consider the public's support of his election to be a referendum on the issue.

But he didnt' do that. He did the exact opposite. Every indication up until this summer was that he was receptive to LRT. He was even discussing ideas about stepping up the planning on the A-line.

This sudden hard-line lock-down on LRT is not what the public voted for. This is one man who happened to be elected mayor on a bevy of unrelated issues taking his own initiative against the wishes of council and the public.
