The $70 million figure was reported by staff at a Council meeting in the Fall. Paul Johnson (the City's LRT project leader) confirmed last week by email to me that this is still the current figure.

Since this money was spent on the basis of several Council votes to work with Metrolinx to build LRT (including a formal Memorandum of Agreement to work in good faith to implement LRT) the City would be breaking its contract with the Province if it backed out now and liable for the costs the Province has already spent or committed. Ottawa and Toronto both had to pay back money after cancelling LRT projects after the work was already underway. Toronto is on the hook for over $85 million.
