Fernie,

As I understand it, Metrolinx always had its fingers in Toronto LRT projects (at least the Transit City ones). The lines and rolling stock were to be Metrolinx assets. It was always unclear what that meant for the city and the TTC, i.e. who would build and run the lines, and who would ultimately be responsible for operating costs, etc. The fear for some is that dysfunction at city hall (i.e. the Rob Ford show) will give the province cover to have Metrolinx swallow the subway portion of the TTC under the guise that it is a regional asset, which is the position they have taken vis-a-vis the LRT lines.
