Generations must pay way


Re: Tunnel tolls better than bridge: expert, Oct. 11.

Here we go again, giving these self-styled “experts” accredited media coverage.

The design life of the George Massey tunnel has evidently run its course and it is time for the present generations to build and pay for their own infrastructure – and tolls should not be charged.

This is what happens and is expected to happen when infrastructure is designed at the time that it was/is. If we could afford to build something many years ago without tolls, the same should happen now.

The taxes then were put into the correct pot, so should they be now. Government must stop squeezing citizens for more tax dollars.

Soon we will be asked for 100 percent of our earnings to pay for their inefficiencies, jobs and bloated departments. Remember who your customers are and that your roles are to serve your constituents.
