Sounds like blackmail to me.

Having said that, there is precedent for this of sorts although a firm contract had been executed. The City contracted to build a new City Hall some years ago and lost tens of millions of dollars when powers that be convinced the City to cancel the contract and rebuild the current City Hall farming out offices all over the City instead. We lost tens of millions of dollars on the contract, centralized government and the extra costs of housing the offices in places like the CIBC building and Jackson square to name two.

As I said the city hall building was a firm and executed contract. I would ask a lawyer but I highly doubt Metrolinx or the Province could sue the City unless there is something specifically in the contracts or letter so intent executed to that effect.
