"especially since it's run by experts and not elected officials."

You're kidding right?

The Metrolinx board is now stocked by pure patronage. There is not a single transit engineer to be found. Aside from Paul Bedford (former chief city planner for Toronto) no one is really qualified to advise on transit issues (and I question whether Bedford really is). The Board is basically composed of lawyers, consultants, and chief executives. Seems like a sinecure to me.

From what I've heard, reports of the in-fighting, grandstanding and parochialism of the politician members were greatly exaggerated.
