TORONTO — Premier Kathleen Wynne is set to deny the Toronto mayor’s request for the ability to impose tolls on two major commuter highways, The Canadian Press has learned.

An official with knowledge of the decision but who wasn’t authorized to speak about it on the record said that it’s about “affordability.”

Instead, Wynne will announce on Friday the government will provide hundreds of millions of dollars for municipalities for transit in the form of a gas tax enhancement.
