Ottawa left out of Federal equation

The Federal budget earmarked $500M for transit infrastructure project in Canada's major cities. Once again, as per a Reuters Canada story, Ottawa isn't in there:
The C$500 million infrastructure commitment will go towards specific projects in Canada's major cities. It is earmarked for the Evergreen Light Rapid Transit System in Vancouver, the re-establishment of a rail link between Toronto and Peterborough, as well as new equipment and upgrades to rapid transit routes in Montreal.

How about a little something our way? Or maybe dipping a few million into that multi-billion dollar surplus isn't a bad idea for long-term infrastructure investment and environmental protection.
