"Can Hamilton afford LRT?" by Adam Carter on the CBC Hamilton website today: http://www.cbc.ca/hamilton/news/story/20...

It is disappointing that the provincial government has reneged on its original promise to fully fund the LRT project in Hamilton after having provided full funding for similar projects in Toronto. With a $2 Billion infrastructure deficit, Hamilton will be hard pressed to find sufficient funding for LRT or AEGD.

One question about the CBC Hamilton article. Given that Metrolinx will not be announcing the LRT funding formula until June, 2013, where did Councillor Merulla come up with the information that Hamilton will have to fund one-third of the cost of the LRT project?
