The report title indicates this work will "Extend Bicycle Lanes" and maybe I'm missing something but I don't see that the lanes on the Queensway are being extended to the lanes on Roncesvalles.
They're not.

From the report:

Extension of the dedicated eastbound bicycle lane on The Queensway to Glendale Avenue

That's the only extension of a bike lane in this report.

There are some other cycling infrastructure improvements though.

The Roncy raised streetcar platforms, w/cycling integration will be introduced further south on Roncy, and at a new stop on Queen just east of the intersection.

The new Queen St. platform can be seen in this diagram:

The new Roncy platforms are below:

Can we fix Toronto’s transit by 2030? With an expected population of 8 million, experts say it’s already too late

If I was a young professional I’d be leaving the GTA entirely. This is a big country.

The problem is with anti-transit politicians and bureaucrats at both city hall and Queen's Park who keep underfunding the TTC, deferring repairs and upgrades, and delaying tactics on transit projects they don't support.

This city will be unbearable in 10 years. It already is now.
No one will want to live here because it's crowded with so many people!

As a young professional, I am curious where would you suggest going.

Hamilton? Mississauga? Kitchener-Waterloo? Beyond?

Needs to be a market that has significant employment.

With telecommuting becoming more of an option, it will start being more attractive, even if you have to come into the office once or twice a week.

For one or two (assuming a 'family unit') looking for one or two jobs, an area with significant employment is an area with one or two job openings.
