Here's a little pre-election grub: the Green party has proposed toll boths on bridges which would generate enough money to pay for the tramway network:

Le chef du Parti vert, Scott McKay, a proposé dimanche d'installer des postes de péage sur les ponts de la région de Montréal. Un péage de 2 $ permettrait selon M. McKay d'accumuler quelque 500 millions de dollars par année. Les trois quarts de cette somme serviraient au transport en commun, notamment à la création d'un réseau de 200 km de tramways électriques fabriqués par Bombardier.
 


What do you guys (especially those commuting from South Shore) think?
$2 ?
