I am not sure that you make sense.

Motorists in Ontario meet at least a large portion of the costs that they impose on the road infrastructure—and in major urban areas probably much more than those costs. If we look at the total cost of driving, including vehicle costs, cost recovery will tend to be closer to 100 per cent.

A 2013 study found that specifically in Toronto and Hamilton drivers paid more than the costs of the roads. See http://www.conferenceboard.ca/press/news...

The writer is neither misinformed nor illogical.

He may be wrong though as these studies are not without their critics.

I wholeheartedly agree with you though that repeating falsehoods doesn't make them true.
