Most of it seems to be vague claims by advocacy groups. No doubt some of it is accurate as far as much larger, faster growing and traffic-congested U.S. metropolitan areas are concerned. However, I don't really see much that would apply to the specific situation of Winnipeg. What specific economic benefits would Winnipeg realize as the result of having a rapid transit system? A follow-up question would be: What evidence is there that these benefits would outweigh the costs of building the system? And a third would be: Could the same or greater benefits be realized in some less expensive way?
