Re: “Bayers Road expansion plans target apartment buildings

How is it that HRM Council failed to find a comparatively measly $25 M for the decades-promised and endlessly debated ferry service to/from Bedford (which would give options to those not wanting to drive downtown in cars and buses, stuck along the Bedford highway) but can even consider this nearly $300 M to pour into more roads? It makes ZERO sense in a time of fiscal restraint.

Peak oil is here or very near, depending on who you read. The prices of oil and gasoline for for cars has been trending up for the past decade and will skyrockets in prince in the coming decades. There are going to be far fewer cars, mainly because of the high cost of fuel, but HRM is not building alternatives such as mass transportation options.

HRM Council needs to realize it is foolishly pouring money into a slowly dying form of transportation that will very soon be unsustainable. Not to mention the incredible costs of fixing and maintaining this crazy infrastructure. This is NOT how I want my tax dollars spent nor is it the direction I want to see HRM go further towards. This is 1950s thinking.
