Ontario Premier Wynne Won’t Give Toronto a “Blank Cheque” on Tolling

CBC News Toronto reports, “[Ontario] Premier Kathleen Wynne is signalling she won’t give Toronto a blank cheque on its proposal to levy tolls on the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway. The tolls — already endorsed by Toronto City Council earlier this month — require provincial authorization to become a reality. . . . Wynne indicated her government’s approval will depend on the amount of the tolls and the alternatives available to commuters.”
