Gas Tax in Canada to Fund Sustainable Infrastructure

| Tuesday June 28th, 2005 | 1 Comment

TorontoTransit.gifThe Canadian cities of Toronto and Ontario, both in the province of Ontario, will receive federal gas tax monies to fund environmentally sustainable projects such as public transit. This is the first time that federal funds, to be doled out over the next five years, will be used for such municipal projects.
The actual amounts for public transit flowing to each city are based on ridership, which is a good thing for Toronto; over half of Ontario’s transit trips occur there. (Via the Globe and Mail, thanks to .)
UPDATE: Oops, I meant the city of Ottawa; as Anonymous pointed out, there is no City of Ontario.
