>> we're mis-allocating scarce resources into infrastructure that will not meet our changing transportation and land use needs.

Worse than that, we're allowing hundreds of thousands of people to sit idle and unemployed. Unemployment in Ontario is currently 7.8%, which works out to 571k people who can't find work.

Even if we assume that these people aren't very productive at building infrastructure, we would still be better off paying them to build it, rather than sitting at home.
