MVA Transit Forum - New Westminster
Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Important: This event has already occurred.
- 6:00PM - 7:00PM
- Holy Trinity Hall, New Westminster
Public transit service levels in the Lower Mainland have remained practically unchanged over the past seven years. In that same period demand has soared. Metro Vancouver residents will be asked to vote on a 0.5 per cent hike in B.C.'s Provincial Sales Tax to fund new transit projects, in a referendum this March.
The referendum is seeking a public decision on the transportation funding measures identified by the Metro Vancouver Mayor's Council. The Mayor's funding plan advocates for more transit routes, more buses, more options for cyclists, and increased service all over the region. Metro Vancouver Alliance members committed to campaigning vigorously for a Yes vote on this referendum. We are campaigning to get Metro Vancouver residents’ transit needs met.
As part of this campaign, we invite you and members of your community to our first Transit Forum on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 6PM, at Holy Trinity Cathedral Hall in New Westminster.
If you live or work in the New Westminster/Burnaby area we encourage you to come. We'll be discussing the upcoming transit referendum and working in groups to build relationships in the community and develop strategies to ensure that the referendum passes, and transit in the region receives increased funding.
It's important to everyone in Metro Vancouver that this referendum passes - join us and help make this happen!
