The Lieberals have to be world's biggest & best bunch of con artists going. Unfortunately, the Ontario voters do not have a good sense of history or good memories. Under Peterson's rule, the lieberals just before they were defeated by the NDP, they cancelled the Gas Tax of 1930 which was solely dedicated to the building and maintainance of the roads& bridges This diverted to the general fund income thus the start of the deteriotation of the roads & bridges.These jackasses only can think of new ways of separating us from our hard-earned dollars and then pissing it away
