Toronto Star Columnist Plugs Tolling, Says Mayor’s Plan Is Not Big Enough

Toronto Star columnist Royson James lists the “significant benefits” to be expected from Mayor John Tory’s expressway toll plan. At the same time, he writes, it “doesn’t go far enough, is not bold enough,” and “would have more chance of survival if [the mayor and city council] stopped shielding Torontonians from this reality: the Toronto region will have to embrace tolls, vehicle registration taxes, higher property taxes and, if wise enough, some kind of municipal income tax to finance a growing city region.”
