...The Sea-To-Sky "Shadow Toll" Knows!
Citizen journalist extraordinare Laila Yuile has done all the digging to break another major story that will not make Gordon Campbell and/or his former Minister of Pavement, Kevin Falcon, happy.
This time Laila has discovered that, not only did we wildly overpay to have a private company build that highway to the Million-Dollar-Condos-Of-The-(socalled)Stars.....
We, the People of British Columbia, are now paying a toll to that same private company every single time a German SUV flies up and down that road on the way to and from apres-ski.
Yes, that's right.
Instead of the drivers of those luxury vehicles paying the toll so that they can go 125 km per hour instead of the previous 105 , every single British Columbian is shelling out instead, regardless of whether or not they even live within 500 kilometers of that hype-laden highway.
Laila's in-depth story is here.
It's a doozy - and it is the type of in-depth investigative reporting that we would all like to see more of 'round here.
At the very least, it should now be one more subject that any self-respecting pro-Journo that has been 'granted' a post-speech scrum with the Premier should be asking about come Thursday morning.
