1 ) as a business owner, this is BS. Taxes don't worry me, it's having access to customers and access to a good pool of skilled workers who can afford lower wages than in Toronto because the real estate's cheaper.

2 ) Highway 6 was helpful, RHVP was a waste -- there were better proposals that could have done the same thing and not cost taxpayers tons of money in legal junk that's still going on, and not cost us what was one of the best hiking and biking destinations in Southern Ontario. We can never undo that.

Yep. Numerous studies have confirmed exactly this. Quality of life and a good pool of skilled workers (many of whom no doubt attracted and/or retained by the QOL) are far more critical to businesses' location decisions than low taxes and other financial incentives.
