Campbell quashes tolls on Coquihalla Highway

Premier Gordon Campbell sent British Columbia’s mayors home from a week-long conference with a small gift – cancelling the 22-year-old toll on the Coquihalla Highway just before many of them piled into their cars to head home past the tollbooths.

Oh, yes, and ferry fares are going up.

  1. My comment is that the toll should have continued and now be applied as a carbon tax for drivers travelling over 90 kmh.
