Integrate the planning of all transportation in southern Ontario

Most major regions fully integrate the planning of public transit with other forms of transportation, and we need to adopt this in Ontario. The recent Metrolinx draft regional transportation plan includes an appendix giving an overview of different types of governance, highlighting models such as Transport for London, but did not give a specific recommendation. The Toronto Board of Trade has also recommended expanding the powers of Metrolinx to consolidate the patchwork of agencies in the GTHA and cover all forms of transportation (they call it 'Superlinx'). We need to do something to ensure that different levels of government start working in cooperation with one another, and this would be a huge step forward.
