Metrolinx expects taxable assessment to increase $62,000,000/year for the city and McMaster believes this could reach as high as $261M because of increased economic activity around the stations.

That's a pretty dang impressive increase in revenues without the city having to build any major new infrastructure like new roads, sewers, schools, rec centres, hydro lines/substations, or watermains!

Really, the economic reasoning from this point alone (and forgetting the myriad other economic reasons alongside the city-building reasons) should be enough to win people over.
