Wish they would finally extend the subway to Mississauga, as extension of the Bloor-Danforth line. This would spur on more densification and largely pay for itself in the holistic sense.

With the TTC now extending beyond Toronto to York Region it gives one hope that further such extensions will follow. Linking up to Mississauga City Centre makes a lot of sense.

The furthest western expansion of the Bloor-Danforth line I've ever heard of is to Sherway Gardens and even that's on no one's radar. There are no plans to expand the subway to Mississauga City Centre. A new transit hub is under construction at Kipling to better interface MiWay and the TTC. I think that and the eventual extension of Crosstown to another transit hub near Pearson, now in the conceptual phase, will be the extent of integrating Mississauga and Toronto public transit for the next few decades.

There's no ridership justification for tunnelling a subway all the way to Mississauga. Such a massive undertaking would be little more than a show project and Canada doesn't do show projects. We haven't done them since the 1960s when we "came out" to the world around the centenary of Confederation.
