Not only that, but he was a very strong supporter of LRT right up until he was elected. In fact, one of the planks in his platform was to "build LRT". He strongly supported LRT in the Durand Neighbourhood Association sponsored election debate October 6, 2010.

He also mc'd an early Hamilton Light Rail meeting with the Waterloo LRT planners in March 2008.

Here is his response to the RTH LRT question at the time of the 2010 election:

I have supported the concept of LRT from the beginning. We will have to fine tune a number of details before a final plan is implemented. What has not been done the the securing of commitment from Council to provide financial support for the plan in partnership with Provincial and Federal funders.

No one knows why he abruptly reversed his position soon after being elected.
