Bring regional transit to Sea to Sky

It's 2023, and it's time for Regional Transit in the Sea to Sky corridor!

Regional transit from Mt. Currie to Vancouver has been a dream for decades, and has been in the Province's court since at least 2015. All the Sea to Sky local governments are aligned. We don't need to go through another provincial election campaign where every candidate promises regional transit, but can't deliver due to the provincial government's hesitating. Local governments don't have the tools to fund regional transit, and shouldn't have to do it from property taxes.

It's time to again apply public pressure to the provincial NDP government. Regional transit is a slam dunk on several levels: climate action, affordability and equity, and easing traffic congestion. Sea to Sky drivers are already paying a similar gas price to the Lower Mainland, with the extra 18 cents per litre going to oil company profits, instead of transit as it does in Metro Vancouver.

This government has a clear mandate from Sea to Sky voters, and need to be reminded that it is well past time for safe, reliable and convenient public transportation in our corridor.

It's 2023, and it's time for Regional Transit in the Sea to Sky corridor!

Regional transit from Mt. Currie to Vancouver has been a dream for decades, and has been in the Province's court since at least 2015. All the Sea to Sky local governments are aligned. We don't want to go through another election campaign where every candidate promises regional transit, but can't deliver due to the Province stalling.

It's time to again apply public pressure to the provincial NDP government. Regional transit is a no-brainer on several levels: climate action, affordability and equity, and easing traffic congestion.

Sea to Sky drivers are already paying a similar gas price to the Lower Mainland, with the extra 18 cents per litre going to oil company profits, instead of transit as it does in Metro Vancouver.

We understand this government is hesitant to introduce a new tax especially in tight economic times, but they have a clear mandate from Sea to Sky voters who are already paying the price at the pumps, without any benefits. Local governments don't have the tools to fund regional transit, and shouldn't have to do it from property taxes.
