We will cease this exchange but keep in mind the weakness of your analysis (re: that the Great Depression/private sector didn't cause a war) because it did and was actually the cause of World War II as Hitler used GOVERNMENT (military) spending to jump start a moribund German economy that (by the 1930's) had long reversed the hyperinflationary experiences of the early 1920's (given the DEPRESSIONARY realities of the 1930's when many Germans were unemployed). See following link for the stagflationary impact of Wall Street banking and business/trade policies-e.g. via the Smoot-Hawley Act etc.-on Germany: http://alphahistory.com/weimarrepubl...at-depression/

If you wanted to continue, you could have just PMed me. I just didn't want it on here, because It has nothing to do with Ferries.

On the topic of ferries....the private sector is less able to guarantee critical levels of transportation service to less populated areas which becomes a social and economic development EQUITY issue for government (transportation) agencies as opposed to the profit (first) manta of private sector transportation firms.

If it's built, it's going to probably be partially be financed by eager Real Estate Investors. Also, it "frees up" relatively flat land from the the remaining ALR in the Fraser Valley, or being taken from the ALR (as will inevitably happen one day in the future, as has been slowly happening for years now.)

The Langdale ferry freed up is just the icing on the cake in my opinion. There's probably enough benefits from just the real estate side to go forward with it.
