Bob Rae: "RAISE GAS TAXES"

Bob Rae has announced his solution to the traffic problems in Toronto...
Drivers will have to pay traffic congestion charges and higher prices for gas and parking if Canada is to reduce gridlock and pollution, Liberal leadership hopeful Bob Rae said Friday."
Yet one more reason Ontario voters, especially those in the "905" will never again support Bob Rae...

But of course, I'm sure the 416er's will be all over this one. Doesn't matter to me. There are only THREE seats the Libs can pick up in the 416, and one of them belongs to Jack Layton.

However, in the 905-belt, which typically makes or breaks a majority, there are about 10-15 that are up for the Tories to take from the Liberals.

So, here's my endorsement for Bob Rae's plan!
(Besides, what do I care? I bike to work...)

    I haven't read what Bob has outlined, but people taking responsibility for their own polluting ways through higher gas prices only makes sense. But when has politics in this country ever made sense.

    Of course the 905ers will never support this, but hour plus commutes are not sustainable, so sooner or later....

    When are Canadian Politians going to learn that taxation kills the economy? How would any dollar sent to Ottawa help pollution? All it is going to do is to increase prices and essentially inflate the economy.

Can you picture 'Congestion tax agents' biking around to traffic jams trying to take down license plate numbers so they can be taxed? too funny!...that is so Bob Rae!Now Toronto streets will have a new distress call: "Rae-day,Rae-day...traffic jam at 401 and 400...Rae-day"

    Would it be worth getting a liberal membership just to vote in Bob Rae as the leader? I can't think of anything that would help the conservative party more that.
