In a recent interview with Raise the Hammer, Hamilton Mayor Fred Eisenberger gave a strong endorsement to light rail:

I think we ought to aim high. We know light rail from an environmental basis is the best and that over the long term, it has reduced operating and environmental costs. ... We need to look for the higher order choice that will serve our environment. With the funding that's out there - $17 billion, a significant amount of money that will be eaten up very quickly - I think we ought to get our fair share. For the lower city, I think light rail is the one.
