Ok, I see what you’re getting at. Although if we want to be really pessimistic about Bombardier maybe Metrolinx is counting on being able to reduce the contract.

Or we can be optimistic and believe that Metrolinx is actually planning to construct the Sheppard LRT and possibly other LRTs besides. This order could be partially diverted to Mississauga and Hamilton.

Or maybe there will just end up being a fire sale on unneeded vehicles.

I don't see why they *wouldn't* be used in Hamilton and Mississauga.  IIRC the trade for 100% cost coverage in those two cities was that Metrolinx was to handle construction and operation of those routes, so it would seem obvious they would use those vehicles for those lines.
How many Flexities would Mississauga and Hamilton need? 90 is a big number and a lot of trains.

Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
Metrolinx is finally admitting legal defeat. They will continue to work within the contract dispute resolution process.
