Dave Hall â€“ Yes then the tolls on each individual bridge could be reduced to level the playing field and provide a continued Operating source while not punishing those only south of he Fraser.
Miriam Marshall â€“ Yes. But only if the current toll rates on the Port Mann and Golden Ears are reduced and that all the tolls are more reasonable. Based on our current transportation management structure, Translink falls under Provincial jurisdiction. However, that would not stop me from advocating on behalf of the needs of City residents. We are in a democracy; therefore, we still have the freedom to let our wishes/needs be heard and they should be considered, despite jurisdictional authority.
Sharon Newbery â€“ Yes. By tolling the Port Mann Bridge and the Golden Ears Bridge it is penalizing the communities south of the Fraser. The tolls should be reduced and applied to all the bridges so everyone pays their fair share.
Nathan Pachal â€“ Yes. Tolling all Metro Vancouver bridges is something that only the province can do. While I personally support fair tolling across the region, there is very little I could do as a City Councillor to make that happen. I think that the current tolling policy is unfair and creates traffic issues by having only some crossings tolled.
Carla Robin â€“ Yes, Iâ€™d support it as there needs to be a fair and equitable distribution of the costs of transportation in the region and the south of the Fraser River area is penalized with costly transportation/commuting costs. However, that being said, city councillors do not get to vote on these issues so our official influence is at this time very limited.
Val van den Broek â€“ Yes – a smaller amount for all bridges instead of a large amount for a few
