The Metro Vancouver Mayors’ Council missed an excellent opportunity to hold the provincial government’s feet to the fire.
Instead of voting to raise the gas/property tax, they should have voted to send a letter to the province demanding the cancellation of the unnecessary and destructive South Fraser Perimeter Road/Gateway program that is sucking billions of dollars away from transit and schools.
The U.S. is now considering taking action against B.C. ports which it says are unfairly subsidized by the government. Container imports are declining.
When will the province wake up and notice the white elephant in the room that is stomping all over our social programs?
