Take Back the 407 ETR

104 Signatures Goal: 100

Over the last several years the 407 ETR Corp has taken advantage of the Ontario people. They have been accused of poor book keeping, unfair practices and bad public relations. The 407 ETR is an Ontario Highway that needs to come back to the Ontario people. The revenue must be kept in Ontario instead of being pushed to Grupo Ferrovial SA (a Spanish conglomerate), SNC-Lavalin (Canadian) and Macquarie Infrastructure Group (Australian). Keep Ontario Service money in Ontario - Take back the 407 ETR!

    My last trip cost $38 for a 100km trip. That is $38/hr! This is total highway robbery and must be legislated to stop. I payed $3 for a 100km trip from Buffalo- Rochester

    Time for the government to re-look at the asinine lease contract that was signed and to fix their mistakes. At minimum, the government should cease immediately to be the toll collector for overdue accounts. No other business enjoys this privilege. The reasoning would be that since the ETR jacked up fees so much above inflation, they have more than enough in revenue to pay for their own bill collection. I would like to see the rates capped to something like the minimum wage levels. If current minimum wage is 11.40, then a 100km trip shouldn't cost more than $11.40.

    I would also like to see all the trip surcharges removed. There were never any when the ETR was first leased. All fees should be included in the per km rate to prevent this additional revenue generation.

    Furthermore, I am sick and tired of governments selling income producing assets to cook the books( to make it look like income and hence offset their deficits) in hopes of getting elected. In the process they give the chosen few (ETR, Beer store etc) monopolies to take advantage of the citizens of Ontario. Time to take them back and make sure that all Ontario citizens benefit.

    I don't mind having a pay road, however the charges have recently doubled with the time of use structure which is ridiculous. (And which has significantly reduced my use of the 407). The funds should also be kept in Ontario!
