Whining about amalgamation is going to get us anywhere. This seems to be at the heart of many people's agitation. Get over it, it's done. Although this may be reversed eventually it's not going to happen anytime soon.

If the old city is going to continue to help foot the bill for the higher costs of suburban development then the suburbs should help with the cost of transit (even this isn't a fair comparison as sprawl does not benefit everyone whereas transit does...)

The alternative is to BROADEN the scope of area rating to we can pay a fair proportion for all the services we use (road building and maintenance, snow removal, garbage poick up...). Hmm, I wonder what that would do to our tax bills?
