Thanks for the links Boris.
Of course all the cities would be a part of such an organization .. they all have the economy and population to support a rapid transit system.

I don't think that list has a metro center which isn't at least twice the size of Winnipeg.. except New Orleans, which has been devistated by Katrina (but also doesn't have rapid transit).

At least compare apples with apples. Once Winnipeg has the population and economy to support an LRT I will be 110% behind it.

Chicago and LA have suburbs bigger than Winnipeg.
