This should have been done long ago! A privatized border crossing makes little sense.

The legislation should call for the lowering of tolls. Crossing at Sarnia is half the price of crossing at the bridge.

In it's current form, C-3 does allow the government to override the bridge operators and impose toll changes if they see fit.

Thanks Yupislyr (I say with my tail between my legs).

subsection 15(b) - allows the Governor in Council to make regulations with respect to tolls.

Next time I will read the legislation before commenting....
