Confederation Bridge—Bridge TollsPublished on 5 June 2017 Hansard and Statements by Senator Percy Downe
Hon. Percy E. Downe:
My next question is on another topic. It’s regarding the bridge tolls on Confederation Bridge. As you know, the Prime Minister, at a town hall meeting in January — I’m glad you’re checking your notes there, Senator Harder; I hope we have a positive answer in a moment — in response to a student from Trent University who happened to be from Prince Edward Island, acknowledged that Confederation Bridge is an expensive bridge to cross. He also said he would discuss with the Island MPs what they could do for Islanders and all Canadians to travel at a modest cost across Canada. Can you advise us what has been done on that file?
