At the moment France has 28 LRT systems. Three of the systems were holdovers from when France had Tram Lines but the rest, all date from late 1980's until now. 15 of those LRT systems are in cities smaller than Hamilton. The smallest is in a city of less than 100,000. In fact 3 of the LRT systems are in cities of less than 100,000.

Well France is Europe, ask your anti-LRT councilors, "why can't Hamilton please have the same transit operating technology as Addis Ababa, Ethiopia", one of the poorest nations on Earth. They have a 2 line 31.6 km system with 39 stations, it moves roughly 160,000 passengers a day.

Here are some nice pictures.
