Regardless of how it's done, more costs of driving should be based on usage as opposed to flat fees. For instance, I can get significantly cheaper car insurance choosing a 50 km commute to work than I can living 2 km away and walking. There's something wrong with that.
Finally, while I agree that we, the taxpayer, got hosed with the sale of the 407, I fear that if the government had held on to it it's fee structure would look like the tax code now. Exemptions for soccer moms going to practice? Good idea. Reduced rates for veterans willing to have a poppy on their plate? Sounds only reasonable. No charge for cars built in Ontario? The unions and automakers would like that one. I think I've made my point.
