Nevermind the timeline (10 years).
Because the real proof is not even in the pudding.
Instead, it is in the financial plan.
Or, to be more specific, the lack thereof.
To wit, BC Liberal government's newly minted Transportation minister's statement to Black Press' Jeff Nagel in the wake of Ms. Clark's fairy-dusted 'announcement' at the UBCM meeting in Victoria yesterday:
...Transportation minister Mary Polak said consultations with stakeholders will look at whether to pursue a bridge or tunnel, whether to use the current alignment or shift it, and how to pay for it.
"It's fair to say that there will be all number of options discussed as we begin the planning of this," she said. "One of those might be tolls but it is too early to tell."....
Of course, the other minor thing in that quote from Ms. Polak is that they have no idea what they are actually going to build.
I mean, c'mon....
Was this written up on the back Jelly Roll's cruller-encrusted napkin on the helijet on the way to the sickness that is Victoria on Friday morning?
