Ontario Premier Meets with Toronto Mayor but Remains Opposed to Tolling

CTV News Toronto reports that Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne remains opposed to the GTA expressway toll proposal after meeting with Mayor John Tory. “Putting a toll on existing roads without having those affordable, efficient transit alternatives just is not fair. We know what people’s budgets are stretched as it is . . . so we need to make sure that we make the investments necessary,” Wynne said.

The Globe and Mail reports that “the toll veto has cost Toronto – which has more than $30-billion in unfunded pending infrastructure projects – significantly.”
