Also the city has a hell of a time trying to get municipalities to kick in for anything.

Otherwise I agree with your sentiment on surface rail being better
The thing is if it was built from Sherwood Park to say Spruce Grove and from Leduc to say St. Albert all those places you mentioned would have LRT service. And I can guarantee the municipalities would kick in some cash to get a train built in their respective cities, especially if one or two of the other cities were doing it. It'd be super cheap to lay the track from south edmonton to the airport then over to say leduc.
