I would like to express my gratitude to a number of people without whose help the Investigative Review would not have been successful.
My thanks go out to David Zimmer, MPP for Willowdale, Vic Dhillon, MPP for Brampton West-Mississauga, Mario G. Racco, MPP for Thornhill, and Tony C. Wong, MPP for Markham, for sharing their time with me on the Review panel. I would also like to thank Anne Hart from the Better Business Bureau for sharing her dossiers. They gave us a window into the kinds of problems that 407 ETR consumers have been dealing with for a very long time.

They were helpful and grateful that we were going ahead with this initiative. They were also hopeful that we would come up with workable solutions.
