I’ve said it before, but I just can’t quite wrap my head around how confused some people get by the idea of a toll.  Way down in this Province thread on the idea of a toll on the Knight St. bridge, there’s a guy who says, “[o]ne less reason head north from Delta into Vancouver.”  He thinks that’s a problem.  But it’s not!  It’s the whole point!  If a toll on the Knight St. bridge encouraged people to take shorter trips in their cars, that would be a good thing.  Who knows?  It might even encourage  stores and restaurants and other amenities to move to Delta to sell stuff all those people who don’t want to drive into the city.
