ION Phase 2 - Cambridge's Light Rail Transit

Legally, yes it's all regional. In practice, the Region cares what Cambridge city council thinks. If the Region builds a route over Cambridge's objection the Cambridge regional councillors probably aren't getting re-elected. This was Cambridge city council giving the go ahead to the region.

Cambridge could also have leverage if any part of the route passes over parts of their property. Kitchener and Waterloo found this out when the LRT route needed land around the Grand River Hospital land. The KW Hospital site is jointly owned by the two cities.

Based on the shortened version of the link I almost never clicked on it, thinking it was another STOP PRESTON LRT as opposed to a PRESTON LRT STOP .... Glad I clicked in the end.
