The DRL story in the Star is going to complicate the picture yet again. Metrolinx originally had factored the plan into its long-term strategic parameters, but outside of its 25-year project queue. Now it's looking like it could jockey for a priority position based on Toronto's strong growth curve. One source estimates that the DRL would be another $4 billion in transit infrastructure, money that the province has suggested it doesn't have. Will it take a winning Olympics bid to bring the feds into the fold, or will someone find a hidden provincial reserve? Will Metrolinx re-examine its priorities based on cities' adherence to provincial growth predictions and prescribed patterns? One thing is certain: The transit portfolio never wants for intrigue!
