I strongly support the LRT for the future of our city and health and economy. Having lived near St Clair Ave in Toronto while the right of way was being built, and above the construction of a new subway station in Singapore, I am fully aware of the inconvenience construction will cause. However that inconvenience is truly short term pain for long term gain. The long term benefits of the LRT are truly much more important for us all. If we don't do this now, the cost in both time and money will be far greater in future. It will cost us more in infrastructure, healthcare, environmental costs, and more if we delay. Many cities can offer advice on managing construction incovenience to businesses so let's seek that out, not delay the whole project. Look to the future!
