Another Crash And Fatality On Hwy. 7

Too many auto deaths in the Fraser Valley this year, but with no alternatives but to drive and ever increasing population growth, leading to more cars and more congestion, more and more accidents and fatalities will occur.

I sorry, only five West Coast Express Trains in and out of Vancouver doesn’t cut it, yet our politicians fret over silly transit projects like the $2.5 billion Surrey LRT which will do nothing and the even sillier $3 billion Broadway subway, which being built, not to reduce congestion, but make Vancouver politicians feel that their city is world class.

The Rail for the Valley/Leewood TramTrain would make a good start providing a viable alternative to the car.

What is world class is the massive congestion in the Fraser Valley, complete with daily accidents and weekly deaths.

Our politicians do nothing and like the proverbial Nero, fiddle, while the region burns with gridlock and death.
