As the City unleashed the launch of a new LRT station in Crowfoot this June weekend, expansion has been painfully slow and missing a key area of Calgary: west. While there is an epidemic of NIMBY syndrome (Not In My Back Yard), with our citizenship reaching well over one million, our rapid rail is well behind other major cities. I would like to see the city invest the money it spends on downtown parking lots put towards the LRT expansion WEST. The infrastructure (Bow Trail) is the most obvious, with one of the first stations being Westbrook Mall. In New York and other centers, there is a rail system that goes above traffic. There has been lots of talk on this, but talk is cheap. They've been talking for as long as I've lived here and still nothing has happened. It makes more sense for a western expansion than Rocky Ridge for the next leg.
