Langley, Surrey mayors push for light rail funding

by

Thanks to the South Fraser Blog for pointing out this article in the Langley Advance about the federal budget:

Langley Township Mayor Rick Green said he is not sure that all the money will go to “shovel ready” projects. Some of the projects may be a couple years away from starting construction, Green said. Green said he hopes that Surrey Mayor Diane Watts has brought regional issues to the forefront. She has been lobbying for money for projects that would affect much of the south Fraser area.

“We’re talking light rail,” Green said.

I’m very glad to see municipalities working together on this, and that it’s now a top priority at the local level. Now, I wonder when our provincial politicos will wake up to the new reality in the Fraser Valley…..
