Still though he isn't wrong about BRT being a good idea for Edmonton imo. It seems to be the fastest and most cost-effective way to build out a rapid transit network. Some examples of where these systems could be implemented in Edmonton could be Whyte Ave, Jasper Ave / 124st and 118th Ave. Mainly with the goal of filling gaps in the LRT system. Also once you build these systems it would be easier to build streetcar / LRT afterwards.
He may not be wrong but I'd rather he be upfront about the fact that he has no direct experience with the place he has and perhaps incorporate people who do actually live in or are familiar with Edmonton for what the best routes are.
