“Metrolinx has handed the TTC (Toronto transit commission) a ticket off the Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown, Finch and Sheppard light rail lines some nine years before they’re supposed to be complete.
The provincial agency sent TTC executives and city manager Joe Pennachetti a letter Wednesday confirming that Metrolinx would be pursuing an alternative financing and procurement (AFP) model for the provincially funded projects, including a private partner for the operation and maintenance of the Eglinton, Sheppard and Finch LRTs.”
This should come as no surprise! Metrolinx is quickly moving to create a regional transportation system through public private partnerships. For the region they call the GTHA (greater Toronto Hamilton area)
Slowly but surely Metrolinx is creating this regional transportation system, that most of the population will like the idea of (at first). Who doesn’t want less traffic, and an easier commute?
The problem is that regional transportation, education, governance is the preference under United Nations Agenda 21. Creation of a regional transportation system is in fact. Bringing us one step closer to the proposed “mega cities” and “mega regions”. Below is a map from america2050.org
As you can see, the “Emerging Megaregions” cross national boarders, and are basically the emerging framework of regional public/private regional governance.
If you are not aware of agenda 21, regional governance, or what it means for our future generations. Please listen to our conversation with Rosa Koire, a expert in the field.
