Coyne on the TTC

Apparently Torontonians don't pay income taxes to Ottawa or Queen's Park.

How else to interpret this from Andrew Coyne?

Your money thrown in a hole in the ground!

Folks outside Toronto may be interested to know that $1-billion of your money has just gone to subsidize the Toronto subway system. But don't worry. There'll doubtless be federal money for the Edmonton subway soon enough.

(Emphasis mine.)

As an aside, I should point out the funding is actually $70-million per year from Ottawa and $70-million per year from Queen's Park, for five years.
