I reluctantly, albeit rapidly, was forced to conclude that denying you my wit and charm was simply selfish.

They did not have a contract with MC, but were definitely headed toward a more advanced system than Presto has become even today. Then QP made them an offer they couldn't refuse.

Not just that. Many party and other allegiances based on ideology & outright personal-gain.

TTC had a contract (w MasterCard I believe) to provide turnkey solution at fraction of the cost/time back in 2009/10 (Pre-Ford) I expected it to be another wasteful TTC folly. In 2010, when I had a chance to compare w Presto, was clear TTC was right: their plan was superior.

Fair comment. Also, transit & municipal planning politics is like an iceberg. Only 10% of it happens in the open, between politicos. 90% happens in the "impartial & nonpartisan" civil service.

That, I don't know. But, Presto is a really, really, really, really bad platform. Like, really.

Because Toronto's transit perspective is one of insular failure & corruption. More fresh air required.
