Taxes, tolls bite

Sure we need more money for new transit infrastructure, but spread it out a bit so it doesn’t bite so hard.

How about $2 per new bridge crossing, $2 for border crossing, and a one-cent-a-litre gas tax? Stop making the bites so big. If the bites are smaller, they will be easier to swallow and perhaps digest.
