Winnipeg's nascent BRT
Now is not the time to cork the champagne bottle - or non-alcoholic look alike - just yet. This essential public capital investment is still being done in a half-hearted manner and that the country club conservative of Tuxedo still holds delusions of Light-rail Rapid Transit.

A rich mayor can afford the inadequate public transit on his car rides from the suburbs, but North Enders and West Enders can't. Sam Katz needs to get to work.
