I don’t think even those raising the heritage issue actually believe it. It is a facade to the real desire not to have an LRT going through the neighborhood. Businesses’ concern about how reduced parking and car traffic may adversely affect them is a valid one but typically any opposition to mass transit is due to the fact that it entails bringing more people into/through the area. You can argue that this is a “good thing” but for people who want to maintain a certain character of their neighborhood (read exclusive) it is not a good thing.Unfortunately, there are people who say having light rail vehicles will spoil the "historical" vista of Brampton's downtown. (Not really, in my opinion.) Some people think the LRT will ruin Brampton. Maybe they expect to see that barbarians from Mississauga will be invading them.
