Former Langley trucking group CEO on mobility pricing group

Paul Landry is the only Langley resident of the 14-member body.

The members of the Mobility Pricing Independent Commission have been announced, including one Langley resident.

Paul R. Landry, a consultant and former CEO of the BC Trucking Association, is one the 14 members.

Landry worked for the Saskatchewn Highway Traffic Board and that province’s public auto insurance program. He spent 17 years as head of the Trucking Association and is a board member of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

The commission was created to make recommendations on pricing transportation in Metro Vancouver, to the TransLink board of directors and the Mayors’ Council. They are to consider strategies that will reduce congestion, among other goals.

Mobility pricing can cover a variety of fees and charges, including tolls, fuel taxes, vehicle permits, taxi fees, and charges for car or bike sharing.

The Mayors’ Council members have pushed for a look at mobility pricing as part of the long term plan for funding increased transit. The plan includes the proposed SkyTrain extension through Surrey to Langley City.

The chair of the commission is Allan Seckel, former deputy attorney general and deputy minister and head of BC Public Service.

Longtime NDP MLA and cabinet minister Joy MacPhail will serve as vice chair.
