On page 10 of today’s National Post, there's a tidbit entitled “City manager backs taxes for Metrolinx”. Here's an excerpt:

“City manager Joe Pennachetti’s newly released report endorses two waves of potential ‘revenue tools’ for the provincial agency. The first consists of a regional sales tax, a gas tax, a parking levy and development charges. The second wave, for use once most of the first $16-billion worth of projects are complete, include high-occupancy toll lanes, highway tolls or other road pricing and a vehicle registration tax.

Mr. Pennachetti says all taxes or user fees should be imposed equally across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. He also says municipalities should receive one quarter of the revenue generated by Metrolinx to use as they see fit on local infrastructure.”
