Rail Crossing a Regional Issue

The City of Victoria may drop the rail line across the Blue Bridge due to the cost.
That makes sense to those in Victoria.
It makes no sense to those in the Western Communities.
This is another example how a City, representing all interests, could do what is best for the City, not just for a small part of it.
If there is value to having a rail line (which I do not know), then it would likely be far better to have it cross the water than stop on the western side.
A City council should consider the merits and if it is worthwhile, move forward, with the cost born by all the citizens. However this will only happen if we had one City council, not 13.
