John Tory doesn't do homework - again!

    TORONTO, Aug. 22 /CNW/ - As the multi-billion dollar hole in the
Conservative scheme to take Ontario backwards gets larger, it's time to help
John Tory with his math.
    Tory says he will increase transportation spending by $1.1 billion.
    Currently, the gas tax in Ontario is 14.7 cents/litre, and together with
the fuel tax, is expected to raise $3.1 billion this year.
    The McGuinty Liberals are already investing over $3.2 billion in transit
and roads this year.
    That's the entire gas and fuel tax, plus $100 million.

    So John Tory has three options:

    1)  Raise the gas tax by over 7 cents/litre to find the $1.2 billion to
        pay for his scheme

    2)  Find the money somewhere else (on top of the billions he already has
        to find somewhere else)

    3)  Not increase transportation spending by $1.1 billion

    Which is it John?

    And, the Conservatives have still not committed to the $17.5 billion Move
Ontario 2020 plan for rapid transit in the GTA and Hamilton.
