I think I can answer one of your questions. There are 9,245,267 licensed drivers in Ontario as of 2010. In 2010 there were 13,135,100 people living in Ontario. 2,190,300 were under the age of 14. That means that about 84% of the adult tax paying people drive. Just by sheer numbers they are going to "dominate."

So I guess it depends on what you mean by "we." We all may have paid for the roads, but even if the cost was evenly dispensed (as in each person paid the same amount - which it is not, drivers pay disproportionately higher taxes for road use) the 84% are going to have the largest say because the government usually responds to the biggest number.
