Re: the Proposed car levy.
As a senior resident and taxpayer, I wholeheartedly agree with the article regarding TransLink’s shortfall in funding of the much-needed and long-awaited Evergreen Line.
A car levy is one of several possible methods, but let’s be realistic, the majority of seniors require transportation and cannot afford an average $122 vehicle fee for only driving cars about 2,000 to 3,000 kilometres per year.
This fee definitely must be varied based on mileage driven.
The Evergreen Line should be, without a doubt, the top priority in TransLink’s future projects.
Let’s get on with it.
