LETTER: Vote for Surrey candidates who vow to snuff light rail madness

One Surrey resident says LRT will be the ‘most extravagant waste of taxpayer dollars’ in city’s history

The Editor,

The LRT debate is one of the biggest issues in the forthcoming civic election.

LRT will be the most extravagant waste of taxpayer dollars in the history of this city.

There are several candidates for mayor and council who will stop this insanity.

Please ensure you get out and support them and vote for them – that is the only way to end this misguided project.

The civic election this fall will in-effect be a referendum on LRT.

Any commitments or expenditure of new funds on LRT by the City of Surrey or TransLink prior to the election of a new mayor and council will be totally irresponsible.

Terry Senft, Surrey
