BC NDP supports Transit Now.

It’s about time the BC NDP grew some balls and opposed the Gateway project.

Carole James addressed the BC Municipalities today, asserting that transport funding should go to build transit now.
“Gordon Campbell has the wrong priorities. At a time when we should be investing in public transit, a lack of provincial government investment is making it increasingly difficult for communities like Surrey to provide basic transit service. Meanwhile, fares are soaring, making transit even less affordable for working families,” said James.

James called for the purchase of additional buses and SkyTrain cars, and the establishment of more transit routes.
Here’s the full press release and the CBC News article.
