Including Thunder Bay in a provincial system would probably be silly, but the GTA should definitely have an integrated fare network.
It would still be sensible to make a province-wide system, although as a late step. Mid-sized southern cities would be ideal next (i.e. London, Windsor, Kitchener/Waterloo) followed by smaller cities (i.e. Brantford, Guelph, Greater Sudbury, Kingston, etc.) then the small towns.
