Go …..squish….. Metrolinx = what ?
The Ontario government plans to merge the rapid transit system with the agency. A Mr. Prichard, formerly of the Torstar corporation until last month, has been named transition adviser for the merger. He will become chief executive officer of the new entity once the merger is complete.

from the province’s site… a quote from the press release…
“Metrolinx has done an excellent job building the agency and preparing a regional transportation plan. By bringing Metrolinx together with experienced transit-builder GO, we will be able to take transportation plans off the drawing board and into service more quickly.”
