Maybe I'm confused.

Every time people ask the mayor about this, he falls back to a variant on this statement:

That will only come with solid data around capital costs, operating costs, and new revenues derived from the project. If the numbers work, including tax implications for Hamilton residents and businesses, approval will follow.

Isn't that exactly what the LRT team was working on? Isn't the development of that information what Chris Murray torpedoed in his abrupt reassignment of the LRT team?

I mean, I absolutely understand what the Mayor's point is when he describes the information we need to put together on this - how it's not enough to simply "push" the province for LRT. But that doesn't really relate to the question at hand - why doesn't the city have more people working on that anymore?
