Letting Metrolinx GO

Plans by the Ontario government to merge GO Transit and Metrolinx will be unveiled later today, according to the Globe: soon-to-be-former Torstar Corp. CEO Robert Prichard has been named transition adviser for the project and will eventually assume the role of its chief executive officer once the merger is complete, and a new board of directors will be formed and will include no sitting politicians—only transportation and planning experts. David Miller, who railed against the idea in recent weeks, saying a board comprised of mostly politicians would be more accountable, will see his involvement with Metrolinx end with the merger’s completion.
