I'm certainly sympathetic to "quality of life" arguments around LRT, but given that the province and the city are both carrying unholy deficits (combined, about $20 billion) and that these lines can cost many millions per kilometer, I can see how straight lines win political approval. It's also a route planned and owned by Metrolinx, if I'm not mistaken. Our negotiating muscle is proportionate to our financial commitment. If we ante up $300 million for a cross-town line, I would expect that the province would be open to creative options.
