Of all the things they currently spend our taxes on, this has to be one of the better investments out there. The boost it will bring to our local economy should certainly help the municipal tax income. Then we can go back to being a city that has it all.

The north/south is just as important as the east/west. The biggest hurdle to sustainable commuting has to be the escarpment accesses. Few have the luxury of living close enough for the stairs and even fewer brave it by bike. A rail line on Upper James could do the heavy lifting up the hill with supporting east/west bus routes on fennell, mohawk, rymal timed to feed it. Eventually an east/west rail line across the escarpment would be nice, maybe with links to the lower line through ancaster and stony creek.
