Fw: as the sun sets in St John's, Newfoundland

The toll is based on what the ferry would have charged. It was $31 when the
bridge opened and somewhere I have a T-shirt from the opening.

In a message dated 7/4/2011 8:23:02 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
how can they justify a toll of $43.25 for the bridge to PEI? It is 8 miles
long but that toll charge is insane
They probably collect that $43 for round trip.... and the distance, I
thought, was 14 miles. So it makes sense.
Now for RADIO...... Incredibly fat tower (guyed) when CHSJ was on 1150, and
with a monster signal. Tower was in an industrial area of St John NB, near
auto salvage yards, cheap hotels, etc. When they moved to 700, they had a
huge array of 4 to 6 towers (can't remember the #) on the last sizable
and-semi-bare hill before going into the city (St John) from the south.
Couldn't miss those towers. Apparently Canadians had not learned yet to become
NIMBYS. Also upgraded was PEI's CHTN from 1190 to 720, the latter audible
around the shorelines north and south of Boston. Both stations spent a ton of
money upgrading, only to go to FM 15 years later.
