Valley commuters need bridge

By Christina Beaupre, The Province October 24, 2010

This is the first I’ve heard that the old Port Mann Bridge is going to be demolished! That bridge was an integral part of the Trans Canada Highway, which is supposed to connect Canadians coast to coast.

How can it be that B. C is ignoring the increasing demand of people who live in the valley by not bringing back light rail. The tracks are laid, we just need trains and stations. I for one would much rather take a train to my job in Vancouver from my home in Abbotsford.

How can they impose a toll on commuters, many of us young families who can’t afford real estate on the other side of the bridge, while not providing a viable public-transit alternative?

How dare they!
