Why my vote depends upon trains for rapid transit

On Friday, I tweeted that my vote for candidates on Regional Council depended upon if they supported light rail transit (LRT). I made it clear that it must be affordable but that we needed to explore every option before considering alternative forms of rapid transit. My declaration clearly resonated as many others resent it (retweeted) to people following them. For me, this statement also covered local Mayors who automatically sit on Regional Council.
