I love any story that has something to do with Montreal concrete! They want to start congestion charges, and put the money into fixing the roads (ha, ha!). I think congestion charges are a great advance to greenery, even more than nasty windmills! This solves the big problem that if you improve or widen the roads, people just live farther out, and drive more.
Thus, commuting is only limited by congestion and how much people can stand, which is an awful lot!
Although I like the idea in principle, I am sure that Montreal will botch it up, and send all the money to black holes.
