I don’t know why this toll issue is coming up again. There is no way any government in New Brunswick is going to propose toll highways after what happened in 1999.
Sure, I know that Nova Scotia has tolls and so does PEI. I realize that most eastern seaboard U.S. states have toll highways. Ontario as well.
But the evidence is clear. The public unions and Al Hogan would crucify any government proposing tolls so it is not in the cards.
Although I will say that one of my more astute readers told me that a public sector toll highway would be okay for the unions. It’s just the notion of a – gasp – private sector toll booth operator that gets them all riled up.
