TORONTO, Ont. — The province of Ontario is considering sharing its take in fuel taxes with its municipalities.
Ontario Premier, Ernie Eves, says the province may give up to two cents per litre in fuel taxes to municipalities so they can address their own transportation requirements.
"I would like to think that there’s a way of getting municipalities more revenue other than just property taxes," Eves tells local media.
His comments came after a speech to the Ontario Good Roads Association and the Rural Ontario Municipalities Association.
"It’s not enough just to, on an annualized basis, throw money at some of these problems. I really do think that we need a new deal for municipalities," Eves adds.
