No, we could get BRT. For the city of Hamilton, BRT offers no advantages over LRT - the operating costs aren't better or anything. And it has substantial disadvantages in that it doesn't draw investment and riders as well as LRT.

Now, the up-front capital cost for BRT is substantially lower, so the province may want to give Hamilton BRT, since the capital costs are the province's problems. But there is absolutely zero reason that any Hamiltonian should be giving them that out. "Yes, you should cheap-out on Hamilton unlike every other major city in the province". Why would we do that to ourselves?
