Re: Gasoline tax for roadway spending.
By that logic, all GST/HST collected from sales of carbonated beverages (Coke/Pepsi etc..) should be invested back into the carbonated beverage industry.
Next time I purchase cat food, I will be happy knowing every dollar of tax is going to improved cat infrastructure.
But seriously, having all gasoline tax excluding GST/HST (10.0c/litre excise tax plus 14.7c/litre Provincial Gas tax) go directly to roads would be fair. Although we may have to start buying a crap load of gas if we want to pay for the Mid Pen. At 24.7c/litre, a mere 20 billion litres will do it.
