Tickets to be ticketed? - Sorry, couldn't think of a better title

Spacing is reporting that the TTC is considering phasing out adult tickets by september in order to combat fraud, which is costing the agency $400,000 a month.

I always used tokens, so I won't miss tickets at all. Tokens can be reused, so they are less costly - but they take up more space. 

I do have some questions though:

Will this mean that a Presto rollout is much closer to reality?
Will corner stores be selling tokens instead of tickets?
Do they already?

Tokens are awful. I carry them because they mean you don't have to wait in lines, but they're tiny, hard to handle and a stupid idea in this day and age. This would be a great time to move forward with a card system.
