Average 80 minute commute, Government Surplus but delayed transit plan funding

A study released today shows how commuters in Toronto spend an average of 80 minutes commuting http://ipoint.to/80minutecommute

Not much earlier was the news that Transit funding was being delayed http://ipoint.to/transitfundingdelay
But wasn't one of the major announcements in the latest budget transit spending? Am I missing something?
Where is this transit money going?

I would love to hear responses on where this money is going. Please comment on this post.

More money for transit less money for silly songs

O Canada, our home and native land.
True paitrot love in all your coyotes command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
Our Go and TTC Fares.
The tax money is better spent
To ensure our anthem is gender free.

As you may have guessed, the opposition party does not like the word sons in
our anthem but has no problem letting coyotes run wild in our school yards and
attack pets in our backyards. They also have no problem giving no more money to
public transit to help the environment.

If you would like to let the government know that our kids safety is important join the protest here:
