James, picture a young couple who lives downtown in a narrow row house - or maybe even on one level of a 3-unit narrow row house, and who does not own a car.

Why do they have to chip in for the overpasses on highway six which allow for the perpetual expansion of waterdown housing developments? Why do they have to pay into the snowplough and road maintenance funds that service a waterdown resident's 50 foot wide lot when their street frontage is equivalent to 14 feet (divided by the number of units in their building)?

It's because we live in a community where we recognize the need to collectively pay for services that benefit the city as a whole. This includes transit.
