How is it that the province has given Metrolinx so much power without any checks and balances whatsoever? Does anyone else see anything fundamentally wrong with this?We all know they aren't. They just think they are especially with project delivery.
The rights for TTC to operate a transit system is a privilege given by Queen's Park in the CIty of Toronto Act, 2006. It can be revoked at anytime. A simple amendment can let disallow the TTC from running parallel bus service along all ML rapid transit corridor. Of course this is really bizarre but a take over of the entire TTC is possible if the city/TTC refuses to submit to Queen's Park's order. A merger of all GTA transit agencies into GO Transit is entirely possible if desired. They already banned the city/TTC from working on any subway expansion without permission!
