True Green Line Cost Revealed

This is a long post, especially for a Sunday night.

But hopefully, you'll agree with us that it's worth it because, despite the vote being tomorrow, the City of Calgary has only just *finally* released a cost-benefit analysis for the Green Line LRT.

Please also forgive the rushed tone of this post as we've just spent hours of our Sunday afternoon analyzing the report for you, and we wanted to make sure you at least had a chance to see this before Council's committee makes their decision tomorrow morning.

The short version is: It's way worse than even we expected. No wonder they didn't want people to see this before the vote!
