First the E&N, then the LRT

Run Greater Victoria light-rail on a trial-run basis first, along the E&N rail line

Re: Review must lead to LRT referendum (Opinion, Nov. 9)

Politicians are going about this the wrong way.

First, they should be using the E&N Railway and begin the line in Duncan, so people can come to Victoria without the hassle of the Malahat Drive.

You could have three rail cars to start with and begin with a one-month trial. Then go ahead and plan the rest of the LRT.

With the roads in the shape they are in, you cannot spend  money on any big jobs like the LRT when you are having a big problem keeping up with the small jobs at hand.

Taxpayers have a lot of things to settle on, where is all this money coming from and what is it going to cost the people?

Remember, you must listen to the taxpayers or pay the penalty.
