Tolling of Private BC Road Tied to Land Use Dispute

Times Colonist reports, “A [British Columbia] developer has installed a toll booth and imposed fees for driving on his road and using his wilderness land in a remote area west of Courtenay. Cars are charged $2, large trucks $5. A recreational pass is $5 per day per person.” The newspaper traces the company’s decision to impose tolls to a “bitter” land use dispute with Comox Valley officials.
