From Grush Hour Tolling Scofflaws - 1859

Canadians have a venerable history of disdain for road tolls, so that the spoiled and entitled commenters that whine and threaten at the end of every Toronto newspaper article about tolling are hardly equipped with novel thoughts. Here are a couple of Krieghoffs from 150 years ago. According to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Cornelius Krieghoff apparently came down on the side of the scofflaws and perhaps admired them.

being a Canadian I hate paying toll on roads. Roads are freedom to mankind. You dont have to go through hills and pastures and rivers, but over smooth surfaces and they going to tax it?
