ION - Waterloo Region's Light Rail Transit
I think we're incredibly lucky that we got our system started and pushed through with some... ignorance? of what was going on in the US at the time. Looking back (and having ridden both the KC and Cinci streetcars), I can't help but think "this type of system would have probably met the development goals of the region, for a lot less money".

What we got, instead, was a "full blown" system - probably because the decision makers here didn't realize there was another (cheaper) rail-based option.
