I'm all for citizens committees and stuff, but seriously, what's the point of this one?? Does anyone really expect a suburban resident to admit "yea, we've had a free ride for too long. It's time for fairness to take place". Or an urban resident to say "on second thought, I love paying way more taxes than the suburban areas and helping them to build their highways, while allowing them to avoid paying for transit. If it ain't broke don't fix it".

Honestly. spare us the political games. This should have been dealt with by our lousy transition team back in 2001.
Similar to Ottawa's situation (which had a competent transition team, and DID deal with this back in 2001) we need to draw a new boundary showing the line between rural and 'urban' (old city and suburbs that are urbanized) and have that be the guidelines for this system.

Either way, get on with it already.
