I just cited two independent studies pointing out the road are NOT already paid for by drivers, and you repeat the unjustified claim that "the roads are already paid for" (presumably, you mean by drivers).

I myself criticized the NDP for NOT accepting road tolls ... what is your point? https://www.raisethehammer.org/blog/2831...

A group like Civic Action http://www.civicaction.ca/ is a great example of an organization that brings together conservatives and "progressives" and supports tolls and other market based mechanisms. The Toronto board of Trade also supports tolls.

Is that enough examples for you?

But the most public example of an organization that is self-described as "fiscally conservative" is the CTF. And I was just calling them out for being not actually fiscally conservative, just pro-automobile and naively anti-tax.

Once again, please point me to an organization that describes itself as promoting fiscally conservative government spending that supports tolls and other market based mechanisms to pay for and efficiently allocate our limited road resource.
