The Senate could pass a bipartisan infrastructure measure as early as the end of this week.

So is this Netflix and battle? The streaming giant recently went after the Eglinton Crosstown LRT project in Toronto.

In a tweet that was removed, Netflix said, “You could watch literally every movie on Netflix ever and Eglinton construction still won’t be done.”

Metrolinx head spokesperson Anne Marie Aikins had the perfect response, tweeting, “Ya it’s taken a long time and has required a lot of patience. Too bad building the largest transit project in Canada couldn’t be built as fast as my Netflix bill goes up.”

The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project was supposed to be open for business in 2020, but numerous delays have pushed the completion date into 2022.

Aikins says project complexity and building in the center of a city are reasons for the delays.
