TRUCK GROUP REJECTS IDEA OF WINDSOR TOLLS

WINDSOR, Ont. — The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) says, that while it recognizes the need to fund improvements to the Huron Church corridor, truck tolls are not the way to do it.

Earlier this year, the City of Windsor passed a resolution to introduce a new toll on trucks using the Ambassador Bridge.

The nuts and bolts of the resolution call on the provincial government to amend the Municipal Act making it legal for city officials to hit rigs with a toll as they approach the Ambassador Bridge.

Instead, the OTA says it favors giving Windsor a portion of the existing federal and provincial fuel tax revenues to improve the high-traffic commercial border crossing.
