An interesting thought

An interesting thought:

Has anyone made or care to make a calculation of the annual lives saved; medical costs saved;Ai??Ai??insurance not paid out; etc.,Ai??if the Fraser Valley had a regularly scheduled TramTrain service from Chilliwack to Vancouver? This an especially important question today, with the scores of accidents and injuries, just on Tuesday on the Number 1 highway from Surrey to Chilliwack.

Zwei reckons that TramTrain would save the medical/insurance agencies aloneAi??about $10 million annually, or about two thirds of the operating costs of the proposed Valley TramTrain service.

Is TransLink and the Provincial Government listening? Do they care?

    But Zwei, the BC government knows that injured people (or sick people from pollution) creates jobs in the health care field. Think of the jobs!
