      To promote tourism on vancouver island. Bc ferries excessive fees for car travel discourages tourists from considering vancouver island as a destination. Alternate means of transport on the island such as a multiday rail pass would attract tourists to explore the island between Victoria and courtenay.

      There is a role for commuter and freight services on the island. Government/lobbying priorities need to change to move government subsidies from highway construction firms, and the automotive dealers association to railway infrastructure improvements.

      An island railway would be great thing to have back but what is also important is to take into effect the thousands of people that commute into victoria from the westshore every day. Utilizing the exisiting tracks would seem like a viable option to relieve congestion on the inadequate highway system.
