The official goal will be to recommend ways to raise the approximately $2-billion a year Metrolinx has said it needs to crisscross the GTA and Hamilton with new rapid-transit projects over the next 25 years.

Are you able to clarify this Ryan?

I assume $2 billion a year for the next 25 means they need $50 billion, but what do we actually get for that $50 billion? New routes? More trains on the same routes? Does the Hamilton LRT factor in to that?

Any idea?

I worry about these "we need more money for X" statements from politicians when X remains undefined and unconfirmed. We've been over-promised and under-delivered to in this province for too long.

I will say of the options presented, road tolls for the GTA/Golden Horseshoe make the most sense and is probably the "fairest" approach.
