What are they smoking? Comparing the cost to build a light rail line on an existing right-of-way through farmland with the cost of building a subway in a congested built up area. You've got to be joking.
And where do they get $10 million per kilometre from? Edmonton is bulding an LRT line at $300 million per kilometer (yes, that's a light rail line). Calgary is costing in the $150 million per kilometer range.
Has there been a light rail system built for $10 million per kilometre in North Amercia - and not in a depressed market depreciating , but in a robust growing vibrant market like Vancouver.
So again, what are they smoking?
