Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Not much coverage

I am doing a quick media scan in Blenz. The local press does not seem to have picked up on the LRC Press Release with the exception of

24hrs which has a whole column inch in the paper edition (Local News in Brief p4) but nothing on line

– TRANSIT PUSH

The Livable Region Coalition alleged yesterday the province failed to adequately investigate environmental impact of, and alternatives to, the Port Mann Bridge twinning. LRC has proposed public transit plans could alleviate traffic congestion.

No mention of the feds!

I hope that we do better in the local freesheets

The Province has a big editorial and lots of letters (as does the Sun) all angry about Translink Board pay. My prediction is that this will simply be ignored.

UPDATE February 13

Translink pay is also compared to other Boards by Jeff Nagel
