Quoted from the article (online here):

With construction set to begin next year on a third tolled crossing for the Lower Mainland, it's time the provincial government paid more than lip service to its promise of a regional tolling review.

The impetus for the 10-lane bridge to replace the George Massey Tunnel, as it is for any infrastructure improvement, is to ease congestion, but how well traffic flows on any new span, as well as on neighbouring crossings, very much depends on how much it costs to cross.

Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington has been raising this point for quite some time now to no avail, but those in Victoria can't continue to ignore the issue for much longer.
