Lower Mainland gets the money
It’s interesting to tally up some of the province’s investment in transportation on the mainland: Gateway/Port Mann twinning, $3 billion; Canada Line rapid-transit extension, $1.9 billion; SkyTrain Evergreen line extension, $953 million; Golden Ears Bridge, $808 million and Sea to Sky Highway, $600 million.
That’s a total of $7.3 billion.
The $110-million estimated cost of upgrading the E&N Railway, about 11⁄ per cent of the above amount, doesn’t seem too out of line. Louis Guilbault Victoria
