"The problem with your defeatism is that it's self-fulfilling."

Not defeatism, just reality. I have been involved as a citizen in this city and at city hall longer than most of you have been alive. I have seen plans for various things come and go, some of them announced as sure things. I know how this city and city hall work. Just because things are announced or planned for in a certain way doesn't mean they are going to happen that way or happen at all.

As much as you or I may want something for this city, the reality is this is a democracy and the majority will rule. While the original polling shows that LRT is a popular concept, the majority of the population in this city will not support it if it means they will be inconvienienced. Destroying one major artery, King St. and turning another, Main St. into a two way road will inconvienience too many people to make it acceptable.
