Would this future route towards Buell and Panther be from Snowy? If so, I have heard talk of such a "corridor" (and even a trail) for many a year now with no action. Spencer Morrissey would know...

I see no need to get testy or twist others' intentions to support a differing POV. Objectively listing something's positive points should not be taken as trumpeting.

There's a very fine line between discussion and debate. People are going to have differing opinions on a topic such as this. I don't think there is a right or a wrong. The debate one could say has...
