If rail system was viable, it would be running

Re: Pieter de Reuver’s letter (E&N support group should explore light rail, Aug. 17).

Here we go again! Can some people just not see that nothing is going to happen with the tracks other than ripping them out for a trail?

Seven years later, and still we see writers comparing Vancouver Island to other countries (this time Switzerland).

Again, we do not have enough people on the Island to support any kind of rail system.

If there was any possibility to get a train going on the island it would have been done years ago.

Seven years and no action means that no government is going to support such rail line. Get over it.
