Sault Ste. Marie City Councillor Cuts and Runs from Truck Toll Proposal. It Was a Joke, Folks. reports that the exciting, controversial proposal to start tolling trucks at points of entry to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, was, uh, just a joke. The website reports, “A municipal councillor’s proposal to set up toll collection stations at every point of entry to the city wasn’t meant to be taken seriously. At least, that’s what we were advised at this week’s meeting of Sault Ste. Marie City Council. ‘I want to make it very clear off the top, I’m not an advocate for tolls,’ Ward 1 councillor Paul Christian said as he introduced a very formal resolution asking the city to consider slapping tolls on large commercial vehicles.”
