Transport Futures Mobility Funding Symposium, April 8

Posted on February 19th, by Move the GTHA in Discussion. No Comments


The public is being consulted on various taxes and user fees (aka revenue tools) that could generate needed funds for transport infrastructure. Are citizens being given the information necessary to provide meaningful input rather than gut reactions? Can politicians and government officials accurately evaluate each funding measure so that economic, environmental and social policies are met? To ensure that informed decisions are made, we cordially invite you to learn about cost benefit analysis and other assessment frameworks that systematically examine which revenue tools best meet sustainability goals set out by Canadian and international governments.  Our experts include:

  • Hon. Glen Murray, Minister of Transportation and Minister of Infrastructure, Government of Ontario
  • Martin Wachs, Senior Principal Researcher, RAND Corporation, Los Angeles, California, USA
  • Cameron Gordon, Associate Professor of Economics, University of Canberra, Canberra, Australia
  • José Vassallo, Associate Professor, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid, Spain
  • David Lewis, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist, HDR Decision Economics, Ottawa, Ontario
  • Geoff Cross, Senior Manager, Policy, Pricing and Funding, TransLink, Vancouver, BC
  • Robert Hatton, Director, Strategic Initiatives & Intergovernmental Finance, City of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario
  • Robin Lindsey, Professor, Operations Research & Logistics Division, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC
