Re: letter to the editor in the July 18 edition of The NEWS, penned by Wendy Beaudoin (‘Rails to trails’).
Wonderful suggestion that Wendy Beaudoin proposed in her letter. Let’s stop the Island rail service idea now because it is just a black hole that the taxpayers will have to keep shovelling money into. Why don’t we spend the money on converting those rails to trails. If you google / Wikipedia “rails trails” on the internet you will find hundreds of conversion examples that were highly successful. Great tourism draw plus good for the local economy. It would be a win win situation.
