Kevlahan, I agree with you. I just thought it was interesting that seancb thought 55 million for roads was a waste, but 27 million for the transit system wasn't.

What would be wrong with selling off the 400 series highways anyway? The government would get a huge cash infusion, be off the hook for maintenance costs and the people who still needed to use the roads could simply pay as they go. We pay for how much water we use, electricity, oil/gas for our homes, so why should transportation be any different? Even China has embraced the idea of private roads (www.tollroadsnews.com/node/123) and their economy seems to be doing pretty well recently.
