Don't over-think those statements. The cheque book is open; they're giving the city autonomy on designing its solution. That's pretty awesome.

Some key city politicians appear to have wavered and backpedaled a bit on the commitment to LRT. So rapid ready was the decision, until that decision started to be undermined. It's a lot of money; the province wants clarity on what line item to put on the purchase order so to speak, which I think that's pretty responsible.

To use a crude analogy: your parents want to buy you a car. Why not choose a good quality yet fuel efficient one. But it is also possible to show such whininess and indecision, that even parents whose heart is set on helping out, say nevermind.

But make no mistake, LRT with capital costs covered, is yours for the taking, especially now. Take the energy spent on over-analyzing every syllable the province speaks, and put that energy toward holding Hamilton politicians accountable for their presentation of the community wishes and the work that has already been done on Rapid Ready. That will make it happen.
