For starters, any such tunnel would connect to the M-C Bridge, so the NCC is already involved.
A tunnel would likely touch upon lands that the NCC either owns or has covenants on, again involving them. For instance your own proposal requires some greenspace along Nicholas.
In addition, the MTO would likely be involved one way or another as well.
I'm afraid that whether we like it or not, all three levels of government on the Ontario side would be involved. The saving grace is that the Quebec side governments probably could be excluded if there was no substantial change in traffic levels on that side.
