In Canada, the main left wing party (the Liberal Party) generally raises taxes, puts us into debt, and gets us the best services possible. The main right wing party (the Conservative Party) generally lowers taxes, raises user fees, and gets us services we can afford even if they're inadequate.
But when it comes to transit, it's the exact opposite. Liberals like light rail transit (above-ground transit that competes with cars) which is cheaper. Conservatives like subways which don't compete with cars but cost a lot more. Their attitudes are the exact opposite when it comes to transit compared to the usual attitudes. This is a consistent difference too.
Sad news. Liberal Premier Wynne decided not to allow John Tory (the mildly right-leaning mayor of Toronto) to put up tolls, after she said she would. Conservatives usually don't like tolls, even though they're user fees, because they interfere with the car. Tory being willing to do this was seen as fresh and exciting.
Tolls would have been charged mainly against drivers from the 905 bedroom communities. 905 is the area code for cities around Toronto (Toronto uses the 416 area code), and it's generally a little more conservative than Toronto. Many (but far from all) of its residents live in the 905 but work in Toronto, but Toronto gets stuck with the cost of maintaining the roads within Toronto. 905 voters got mad at Tory, but they don't get to vote for or against him, so Tory would face little political cost. By contrast, Wynne's seats in Toronto are safe, but the competitive 905 seats would likely go to the Conservatives, which would cost her the upcoming election. So she wimped out.
In Toronto (and probably most Canadian cities) funding comes largely from property taxes. Every year property taxes go up more than inflation because they simply don't bring in enough money. Tory tried to get Wynne to allow him to raise other taxes (a gas tax, an alcohol tax) but she would only allow tolls. And then she decided against even that. She did promise him some money (and not a small amount) coming from her partial sale of Ontario Hydro, but it's less money than the tolls could have raised.
(As an aside, in Canada Conservatives supporters are often called Tories. Tory ran as Conservative leader in 2007. It would have been even funnier had he been a Liberal.)
