Five years ago:

"Ontario is asking the federal government to contribute a further $6 billion to increase the total investment to $17.5 billion. This level of support is consistent with other infrastructure projects of national economic and environmental importance – and typical practice of federal or national governments around the world."

That $17.5 billion is sky pie.

Without factoring the feds into the picture (and here Hamilton at least gets closer to having a partisan case), Metrolinx is working with a capital budget of around $5 billion, or 1/10 of the estimated cost of rolling out The Big Move. With them on board, we're around 2/10 of the way there.
