Does privatization effect the bottom line when it comes to highway maintenance?

Isn't it amazing when we hear comments by some taxpayers saying that former B.C. premier Bill VanderZalm should have never privatized the B.C. Department of Highways because maintenance has never been the same.  Very funny!

Mainroad contracting was formed by a group of former B.C. government highway employees.  Amazing now, that with their own dollars invested, they manage to watch the bottom line whereas when they were government highways employees, money was not important.  What comes around, goes around!
