Re: Mayors probe moving tracks inland, Nov. 21.
The whole idea of moving the BNSF tracks inland is a non starter.
It is hard to imagine a scenario where paying $400 million-plus would be intelligent, considering that there would be almost no overall advantage to moving the tracks into someone else’s neighbourhood.
The railway company has no motivation to undertake such a project, and no government in its right mind would waste what amounts to one hundred dollars per B.C. resident on a walking trail.
It seems irresponsible for city politicians to be trying to gather support for such an impractical fantasy.
