Anyhow, if you missed the Globe and Mail this weekend, Stephen Quinn has what amounts to the best summary ever of the many and varied arguments for and against transit funding.
I'm partial to Number Four:
4) An increase in the gas tax is a stupid way to pay for transit because it penalizes people who don’t even use transit and takes money out of the pockets of hard workin’ British Columbians who are just tryin’ to get home to spend a little more time to do whatnot with their families.(Depending on how you use the 'net, you may find the G&M locked up behind a paywall. Sorry about that)
