Why should I have to pay 100% of the costs of a bridge that will be around 50 years after I die ?

I'm ok with that stuff being paid off over time.

Well if you are a certain age, you won't be around to see a lot of things get paid off but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be paid off.
If the Port Mann is amortized over 30 years I won't be around to see it paid off but that is no excuse to stick 100% of the cost on future generations.

 I'm OK with stuff being paid off over time as well but this debt to GDP nonsense is just to justify paying for stuff forever.
