There certainly is the intention to build a world-class rapid transit network that enmeshes several disparate regional transit systems. To accomplish that goal, Metrolinx must overcome its two main impediments: lack of any real power and lack of any real financial plan. They have understood first challenge since its 2009 ingestion by the MTO borg, and the latter since the summer of 2008. These roundtables were long overdue.

That Metrolinx has waited this long to initiate the "big conversation" does not inspire great confidence, and their rose-coloured price tag serves as a subtle reminder that the "difficult conversations" are being kicked down the road (though not far, considering they pitch the province on their strategy in 15 weeks' time).
