Citizens’ Climate Lobby Backs Montreal Mayor’s Congestion Pricing Idea

Montreal Gazette runs an op-ed column by a member of the city’s Citizens’ Climate Lobby who argues for Mayor Denis Coderre’s proposal to introduce a toll on driving downtown, writing, “The mayor suggested the toll could be a way to fund public transit. But there are other reasons to justify tolls,” one of which is “drivers [now] pay only a small percentage of the costs they impose on society.”
