Actually we had the foundations for a comprehensive LRT system more than 100 years ago:

Hamilton & Dundas Street Railway 1873-1923 Hamilton, Grimsby & Beamsville Electric Railway 1891-1931 Hamilton Radial Electric Railway 1893-1925 Brantford & Hamilton Electric Railway 1896-1931 Hamilton Terminal Company 1907-1930s

It included incline railways to move man and machine up and down the escarpment quietly, cleanly and efficiently in a matter of minutes.

Some cities kept their early systems and expanded them as they grew. Unfortunatley in Hamilton it was probably those with views similar to yours that caused the systems to be abandoned in favour of "modernizing".
