TransLink managers overpaid

It’s not only time to leave TransLink, but to get rid of TransLink and its overpaid management altogether.
My question that has been submitted to both TransLink and the minister of transportation – which both have failed to answer – is as follows:
Why is it that Canada’s largest city, Toronto, can provide public transit made of buses, street cars and subway to five million citizens for half the cost of ours in Metro Vancouver, and under one single administration? Why do we in Metro Vancouver require an administration for TransLink, another for Coast Mountain bus company, same for West Coast Express and the SeaBus and the last the SkyTrain to Richmond?
Does that means the management and CEO’s in the west have less brains capacity to run a public business than those in Toronto ?
