My 2 cents

Being treated differently? Yes. Here's why

The LRT projects were announced in 2007. Then the recession hit, and the Liberals had to cut back, but wanted to do it in such a way as to not appear to be cutting back. In Hamilton's case, they kept delaying LRT announcements in 2009 and 2010 until it became too late to get the line completed before the Pan Am games. This then pushed the construction start date till after the games in 2015, with completion around 2020.
