All you really need to know about our society’s actual commitment to the environment is contained in two recent measures:
1. It now costs $3.00 for a single fare on the Toronto Transit Commission. That would be $121 a month for a pass. Such prices make public transportation almost an elite service. In Mexico City, it costs about $0.25CDN to ride a subway that is vastly superior and much cleaner than Toronto’s.
2. The “Liberal” government of the premier who looks like Norman Bates recommends fiddling car insurance rates to lower some premiums. As ever, dear Dalton is privileging the car industry and automobile drivers over others.
Public transportation is prohibitively expensive, but you might get a break if you buy a car. As the world learned in Copenhagen, Ontario and Canada are not environmentally responsible jurisdictions.
