Typically, roads in Canada are built, maintained,and operated at public expense. recently, high way 407 north of Toronto was sold to a private firm, which now charges motorists a toll to use it, should more roads be privately owned and operated in this way?

  1. That sounds like a debate topic and is a decision for the people to make. Toll roads are not popular in the western U.S. and in most of Canada, and many of those that were built in California are losing money. In the eastern U.S., and the rest of the world, they seem to be a way of life.
