The difference in cost between the subway and LRT was 3.25 billion for 8km of subway and 1 billion for 13.6km of LRT. The magnitude of the difference is over 2 billion while Regina's is 200 million or so. Not to mention that the LRT and subway both represent something that Toronto doesn't currently have (on that route) so either option provides a new service not currently being provided. As I've said above, this isn't true in the case of a new outdoor stadium here.

Also as baker said above the mayoral comparison isn't really valid. Ford's been a mess almost right from the start.
