It is a fundamental mistake to see the enemy as a set of targets. The enemy in war is a group of people. Some of them will have to be killed. Others will have to be captured or driven into hiding. The overwhelming majority, however, have to be persuaded. — Frederick Kagan
Some hoaxes have massive GoFundMes, some are just massive government wealth transfer programs. This one will set the precedent for billions.
Nearly five years after a train derailed in Lac-Mégantic and killed 47 people, the federal and provincial government confirmed a rail bypass Friday that will ensure trains leave the Quebec municipality’s downtown core for good.
What downtown core does a tiny railway village have?
“There’s nothing we wouldn’t give to go back in the past and avoid being here today to make this announcement,” Trudeau said. “Obviously, we can’t rewrite history, but we can, together, shape the future.”
Actually you do write history, and you also rewrite history.
While the estimated cost is $133 million, the next phase of the study will clarify the final cost of the bypass.
I’m sure the final tally will be many multiples more.
Transport Minister Marc Garneau said the project will encompass 80 pieces of privately owned land. The federal government will approach each of the owners and come to an agreement with them in terms of the value of their property.
Our a$$-true-NOT deep in the deception – I wonder how many plugged in people are among the 80 that will benefit from this land expropriation?
“When you move a rail line, you’re moving it from somewhere to somewhere else. There are private lands all around this place and there’s no question that there’s going to be people impacted when you move a rail line.
Impacted by huge windfalls.
Couillard also said that despite the goodwill of all those involved, a project of this magnitude could not be improvised.
The whole event was perfectly improvised – via a script.
He called the long-sought bypass an exceptional response to an exceptional situation.
Additionally, the federal government has reached a deal with the Central Maine & Quebec Railway, which will own and operate the new infrastructure.
Is this Crown literally handing over the expropriated land to a private corporation? Isn’t this the definition of fascism?
