Taxes or tolls, but not both, for the tunnel
Re: Skeptics Balk at Downtown Tunnel, Sept. 8.
So our mayor favours a toll when or if a tunnel is built through Lowertown. Balderdash! If the tunnel is funded by private interests, then by all means charge a toll so they can recoup their investment. It will probably be cheaper and more efficient anyway. If, on the other hand, various levels of government take this on, but cannot afford to operate and maintain it, don’t build it.http://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/letters/todays-letters-pearsons-library-truck-tunnels-and-the-phoenix-pay-system
