Convert E&N rail line to bike and hike

When population warrants rail transit, it will be there to utilize

Rail traffic for the Island is not going to be feasible until the Mid-Island population is great enough (10 or more years away) and then Light Rapid Rail is likely most suitable.

Feeding Dennis Washington’s company more and more money is nothing but wasteful – as is continuing to pay Graham Bruce to “manage” the Island Corridor Foundation’s affairs.

Perhaps a Victoria-Western Communities link might help resolve their traffic issues, but the fact remains that the E&N everywhere is moribund and there ain’t nobody jumping at the “opportunity” to finance such a project.

For now, fold the ICF and convert the line to “bike and hike.” It ain’t going anywhere and it will still be there when our population warrants rail transit.
