A 10 cent a litre gas tax.

That's what PC leader Tim Hudak says will be in the budget if both the Liberals and NDP get their way. He made this claim while on the byelection trail in Thornhill.

A 10 or 5 cent a litre gas tax was proposed by a panel looking into how to pay fro transit expansion.

Hudak claims the two other parties at Queen's Park are involved in secret talks on this very issue, planning to put a gas tax in the budget.

He says a hike like that just isn't affordable for families.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath has said she hasn't presented the Liberals with her budget demands yet and is still consulting with residents.

Finance Minister Charles Sousa underlined he's not negotiating right now.

    Why would the rest of Ontario want to pay a gas tax towards transit for Toronto to get transit when we have to pay for our own transit here locally outside the metro Toronto area through our property taxes. sorry to say this but Fuck you Toronto - pay your own f;n higher property taxes for your own transit like the rest of the province has to. your property taxes are already half of everywhere else
