City council in Brampton meets today to pick a facilitator to try and find some common ground on the proposed LRT.
The province stepped up and said it would completely fund the $1.6 billion project that would run up Hwy. 10 in Mississauga and Brampton, but some councillors in Brampton oppose the idea.
A recent poll found 46 per cent strongly supported the project as proposed and a further 27 per cent were somewhat in favour. 14 per cent of respondents were strongly opposed and 13 per cent were somewhat opposed.
Those in favour of the project hope the poll numbers help council see that that the vast majority of the city wants the LRT
Metrolinx says the $1.6 billion project is expected to carry 35 million passengers per year by 2031.
Brampton council is set to make a final decision at a special meeting in 2 weeks.
