Vancouver Mayors’ Mobility Commission members have history of taxing drivers

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Metro Vancouver wants to impose a tax on drivers — or as they call it, “mobility pricing” — and we’re fighting back. 

You can find out more and sign the petition at NoRoadTaxes.ca to tell the mayor that we already voted against a transit tax.

But there’s more - the Mayors’ council, led by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, have put together a commission which will look at the idea, study other jurisdictions that have implemented something similar, and make recommendations.

The report isn’t out until next spring which makes this road tax a civic election issue as we head to the polls in November 2018.

Watch as I show you who is on the commission and their history of taxing drivers in other cities, the implications of their recommendations and why London's attempt to impose a congestion tax has seen mixed results for congestion and negatively impacted retail sales in London.

Given the obsession with being the “greenest city” and the clear and consistent war on cars waged by city halls across the region, I worry we may see very draconian recommendations in the name of sustainability specifically aimed at making driving so expensive, we just can’t afford it anymore.

If you think so too, please head to NoRoadTaxes.ca to sign and share the petition with your friends, family, and anyone you know who has to drive for a living.

Eh, Robertson, you Communist POS – get off that NDPigger wagon train!
And just what the hell does a stupid doctor know about traffic??? Maybe he ought to pay more attention to the traffic in his waiting room. It’s dim-wits like doctors who have no idea of traffic situations!
Vancouver is one of the filthiest cities I’ve ever been in. …mostly because all those decaying NDPiggers who implemented all their lunatic “plans”!

This man, backed by the US Environmental Groups is plain crazy, but as we recently found out, so are the Vancouver voters.

It’s the next step for us to not drive cars.
