What do you think about this article? If they are privatized would this cost us more money? it sounds like their recreation projects could be in jeopardy if privatized. Dunno?

If the sale was made to a private entity, it would be a win-win for the government. They would receive the sale proceeds immediately and then tax the operation into oblivion.
