A portion of the press release issued by Transport Futures on September 18, 2013, is quoted in this article.

... Transport Futures has also come out to back the new panel, encouraged that they will explore road tolls, parking fees and a
carbon tax as a possible funding method while dismissing Metrolinx’s funding tools.

“The four politically-correct tools selected by Metrolinx will do nothing to cut congestion, increase road safety, or
reduce climate change and smog, especially in the short-term,” said Transport Future founder Martin Collier.

“They are simply a tax grab and could be detrimental to the economy.”
