Canada: Alberta premier warns Opposition United Conservatives eyeing toll roads

Premier Rachel Notley says Opposition Leader Jason Kenney’s plan to build user-pay infrastructure if his party is elected can mean only one thing — tolls on roads.

In a speech to energy producers in Edmonton, Notley suggested that recent comments by Kenney lauding user-pay infrastructure can only mean he would bring in tolls for drivers.

She said that would affect everything from industrial users to families driving to the store on weekends to go shopping.

Notley said tolls are not the way to go, and if the United Conservative leader is not proposing them, he should specify what he means by user-pay.
