The construction of a toll-highway between Fredericton and Moncton on a distance of 195 kilometres has been a topic of discussion in many circles.  Opposition to the toll has been evident in the Moncton Petitcodiac area.  The toll is certainly double taxation for the citizens of New Brunswick who will be using the road.  It is also discriminatory for the population of the area of the highway who will be using it.  For its part, local 1190 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) has focussed more on the financial aspects of the project and the loss of jobs for its members.
