The blatant racism over a couple of threads is kind of appalling!
Predictive text and a tiny keyboard are not my friends!

Thus wouldn't be the first time that a comment phased like this from you wouldn't be in disdain...

"what would the income source be for them running a station where only a few people a day get on and off of? There would need to be a financial benefit to them such as jobs for their citizens."

you analyze a lot of nothing  way too much man...

 

 

There is nothing about that comment that is racist.. It was a simple question as to how will a station male money and who will work in it of there is no income attached to it.

 

FFS the other comment about Alberta is far more blatant than mine but you don't bring that up? Why not?

 

I don't need you being the internet police to me and deciphering my post as something negative when it is not.

You suggest a station on reserve land but with no jobs attached to teh station with no income?

 

Thats absurd..why in the world would they want a station then

what would the income source be for them running a station where only a few people a day get on and off of? There would need to be a financial benefit to them such as jobs for their citizens.

The thinking would be to partner with them on a nearby development, kind of like in some jurisdictions where a casino is built and FN members are involved in its running. Not suggesting a casino, but the Esquimalt First Nation has hinted in the past about future developments on their land.

The point of the station is not to make money, but a portion of the ticket sales would be a possibility. Also as I have suggested in the past. Several FN groups do build developments on their land and rent out for commerical spaces or residential  and in some cases RV parks (ie Island View Park). The station itself would simply act as the focal point of any new development on the Esquimalt FN land which in turn would be the primary source of income..

 

You could incorporate a commercial aspect into the station.

Oh,

It's helmcken Rd at Pheasent Lane, near view Royal elementary. On the Victoria Commuter Train page they were looking at stations at either Helmcken Rd or at 6 Mile Rd. So I am doing a rendering to show what that would look like.
