But as you say, HRM has some very poor and excruciatingly slow processes of their own, which is a problem they need to fix. There is no way these things should be so slow. The HRM bureaucracy is overly large and far too expensive to support, the planning dept is staffed with the wrong people in many cases, focusing on the wrong things much of the time, and they have zero sense of urgency. That all needs to change.

LRT is not going to happen in our lifetimes.
I'm a cynic like you but I have to ask, what has your experience with HRM's planning dept like? I've been out west for so long I kinda fell out of the loop.
