But the Premier and I fought very hard to get that funding allocated, and - I don't know, Bill, I don't know how I can reasonably look my cabinet colleagues in the eye after fighting for this transformational funding for the city we all know and love, you know, if after all of what we've been through, the Council in its infinite wisdom or folly turns down light rail transit.

I feel for McMeekin, a suburban MPP who has gone to bat for this project yet meets local opposition at virtually every turn. It seems clear that certain councillors never expected the province to call their bluff on paying 100% of LRT's costs. I hope the Province can see through the smoke of parochial and self-serving interests and keep moving the project forward.
