There's a chance the next federal budget will help to level the playing field for transit. Right now there are many ways in which companies can support their driving employees' reliance on the automobile -- such as free parking -- but little balance when it comes to transit.
My MP, Carolyn Bennett, is suggesting something else in her latest newsletter. Here is a reprint of a letter she received, and her response to it:
Is she just hoping, or is there a good probability of this happening? Let's join her in hoping that this small tax reform takes place. And, let's go beyond hope and write to our MPs and the Finance Minister about this.
[Update, February 5 -- Carolyn replied to my email with this response: we passed it in the House.... so we sure hope it makes it into the budget !!! we'll keep fighting..... Carolyn]
[Update 2, February 19 -- It didn't happen]
