Submission Text
As a resident of the Basin, and a taxpayer, I wholeheartedly disagree with bringing this railway here. The tax money spent on the study alone is absurd. Also, I like our rural way of life. If you want to live in a metropolis where there is railway, then by all means, please move there. There is also no indication that private companies will waste their money towards over a $1 BILLION spend to get it here. If there are, why are they not listed? Are you in partnership with them? Which companies are they? How much are they willing to commit to this venture (fiasco)? The waste of spending so much $$ for such a great unknown is a complete travesty. Taxation is theft. Please don't use this thievery towards this project.
