Would you pay $60 a month to drive in an HOV lane by yourself?
The Wynne Liberal government is betting you will.
Starting this fall you can drive the stretch of HOV lane between Burlington and Oakville as a single occupant if you purchase a permit at 180. for 3 months.
The 1000 permits will be offered in a lottery system because the demand for these gold tickets will greater than that for a Tragically Hip ticket. (So they say)
Remember when HOV lanes were introduced?
It was all about saving the environment for our grand kids, encouraging car-pooling, and getting more cars off the road…
What started as a plan to save the environment, has become nothing more than a cash grab.
Forget the environment, if you can afford to pay, use the lane!
No wonder Ontarians are skeptical about Wynne’s Climate Change Action Plan and the rest of her green initiatives.
More proof this government uses the green movement, not to save the environment, but to line their own pockets.
