Putting a toll on the Malahat wouldn't be a good idea. I don't like the idea of the use of tolls on routes where there is no alternative for a user.

Now, putting a flat daily-toll rate of 5-10 dollars between Parksville and Campbell river along the 19 where it runs parallel to the 19A could be a possible idea for revenue generation. Unless your making a short trip, in my personal case what used to be Fanny Bay to Qualicum Beach or Courtenay and back, we already use the 19A, but for trips further south or north, say to Parksville/Naniamo or Campbell River, we would use the 19A anyways due to time and fuel savings, which would offset any 5 dollar daily toll.

And what I mean by a daily toll is that you'd get charged once a day, and then keep a receipt or waiver to get through the rest of the day. Or you can pay for a weekly pass of $20, a monthly for $50, or a yearly for $250, etc.
