Thanks Ryan. Comprehensively refuted.

What bothers me about this is not so much (as I tweeted quickly after doing the few minutes of debunking work) that the Spec feels free to print outright falsehoods in the guise of op-ed pieces without bothering to fact-check. That's the newspaper biz now.

What really bothers me is the author, who is a CA and CPA practising in Ontario and can be presumed to have read the Budget in fairly careful detail (no more than ten weeks ago) can instead dig out recommendations from an old Metrolinx report which has been fully rejected twice (once by the Transit Investment Strategy Advisory Panel last December, then again by the government in the Budget) and present it as government tax policy. That's an outrageous fraud on the public.

It's a shame. That's all. It's a darned shame.
