"Until the the cheque's been cut, until it's determined just how much money it's going to cost the taxpayers of Hamilton to make LRT happen (beyond the promised capital costs), all conversations are moot. It doesn't matter how eloquently the case for LRT is made... to blindly believe that 'the money's going to be distributed, so if we say 'No' to our share, then it's only going to go elsewhere' is folly."

I think this is a mistake. A healthy enthusiasm for LRT will not guarantee provincial funding. But a distinct lack of enthusiasm will almost certainly give the province a way out. What is folly is to suppose that local political conditions will not be relevant to the allocation of provincial capital funding.
