Toronto Isn’t Alone in Eyeing Tolls

YorkRegion.com reports, “If you’re a commuter who thinks toll roads coming to Toronto are highway robbery, brace yourself. While the issue doesn’t have the same traction as it does in Toronto . . . , it is slowly percolating, mainly out of the public eye, in York Region.” A local public transit advocate tells the website, “We’ve been working behind the scenes (to make it happen here).” His organization is lobbying local lawmakers and transportation officials to toll Highways 400 and 404, “with revenues being earmarked for transit and transportation projects in the region.”
