They're always going to be expensive whether it's now, 10 years from now or even 30 years from now so that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. A buddy of mine actually looked into it and it's ridicuolously "cheaper" to expand a subway line in Toronto than it is in say, NYC and a few other metropolitan areas/cities. Also, LRT if done like in a"monorail" style fashion is ok but if it's on land where will it be? The GTA already has probably the worst "expressway",etc/lack there of of any major city/area in N.America. More traffic + congestion is not welcome.
