The transport ministry has unveiled final plans for the Turcot rebuild, tagged now as a $3-billion project.
Kate, qatzelok, Steph, and 3 others are discussing. Toggle Comments
So what they really mean now is $6-billion.
Let’s hope it stops there.
Would it be too difficult to include a clause in the construction contracts on a final price? And they could also include clauses for deadlines which can be punishable by fines. I’m not a layer but it seems a little too obvious that they leave these things out.
Pics or it didn’t happen
Oh here they are. Very snazzy. http://www.turcot.gouv.qc.ca/Pages/default.aspx
Steph, binding guarantees like that would limit how much the big mob-controlled construction firms could suck out of the public coffers. You have to give them a chance to profit!
Now THIS is a waste of money; or at least a very inefficient way of investing it. Where are the protesters when we need them? Oh yeah, they’re fighting against tuition increases.
Well, one reason people fight against tuition increases is that they believe that the story that Quebec is broke and has to flip ever penny twice before spending it is a myth – illustrated by wasteful projects such as Turcot.
At what point can we fine/jail the government for being complicit in wasting public money?
Not only is the government NOT investing in free university for all, it’s not investing much in mass transit either. The message is: you will have no choice but to drive a car because we aren’t spending anything on trains/tramways/new metro lines (unless it’s to get strategic votes in Laval or Mascouche).
Alas, it’s true. They’re saying $3 billion for the new Turcot which everyone knows will be $6 to $8 billion by the time all the bills are in. Meanwhile they fund a conference for transit users to dream up new ways of raising money to support public transit.
