I would argue the opposite. All infrastrucurre is expensive and subsidized. What we are witnessing is a failure of successive govenments to spend money wisely. If we had followed the plans that were in place in the 70's and 80's we would have a subway system and a Go Transit system double the size we have, 30% more highway capacity and lower power generation costs. Instead we have public sector workers earning far more than the private sector workers in salaries and pensions and we have spent the very minimum on public transit, highways, sewers, bridges and power plants. Our health care costs cannot continue to grow well beyond inflation year after year. There are hard decisions to be made and some people are not going to be very happy about it.
