Anti-privatization crusaders are seizing on the recent scandals in the BC legislature to argue against the planned privatization of BC Rail. Transportation Minister Judith Reid, however, says that the BC Rail privatization deal should proceed. The Minister is spot on: the taxpayers of British Columbia shouldn’t allow unsubstantiated rumours to derail good public policy. The benefits of privatization are well established, and BC Rail is no exception. It simply comes down to fiscal common sense.
