The EA has been sitting on at the province since October 2006, seemingly collecting dust. According to a Toronto Star article, the concerned citizens are worried that the province is waiting for the new EA rules to come into effect in June before expediting the project.
Given the movement on the RTP, I think the most likely scenario is that the Province is waiting for the plan to be released before sending the EA back for study in the context of the plan. The province, under the very same government, wouldn't have created Metrolinx only to undermine it. Also, given the concepts released under the white papers, Blue 22 seems to have morphed into two, possibly three different lines - two are green, and one is a red rocket.
