Business Vancouver » British Columbia’s New Democratic Party government has acted on its campaign promise to eliminate bridge tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges will be removed on September 1. The move is expected to save families an average $1,500 a year, according to the province. Commercial drivers averaging one crossing a day are expected to save about $4,500 per year. Critics say the policy is irresponsible, since it will eliminate $135 million in annual toll revenue for the foreseeable future.
