Rick Green (for MAYOR) â€“ No, there should be no additional costs to residents of the Township of Langley UNTIL we receive an adequate service by Translink. Currently we are not receiving anything close to what we are submitting in tax dollars. (property and gas taxes)
Solon Bucholz â€“ NOT SURE. I would need to study this further with adequate input from Translink, the township management and the community in order to weigh the benefits and disadvantages of this option to raise money for an adequate transit solution.
Zoshia Ettenberg â€“ I donâ€™t know. Iâ€™m not familiar with road pricing and would need more information on it before giving an answer.
Clint Lee â€“ No, our residents must travel farther distances in order to access certain goods and services and this would unfairly penalize us, especially given that we have no viable transportation alternatives.
Patricia Lessard â€“ YES, I believe this is the fairest way to fund transit.
Jackie Mandzak â€“ No. We currently have large tolls on two of the major bridges our residents use. In the future we will see tolls on Highway 99 going to Richmond when the decision over revitalizing the tunnel or building a bridge is decided. For those living south of the Fraser River, a large burden is already placed on commuters both through tolls, property taxes and gas taxes, without the benefit of good transit. I do not support adding to it.
Scott Nichols â€“ No. Unless it applies to bridges.
Kim Richter â€“ NO. Road pricing is unfair to Langley Township residents as our transit services are so minimal here that we have little choice other than to use our vehicles for work, school and business. If adopted, Langley Township residents will have to pay 10 years of this additional tax before seeing any significant improvement in transit in Langley. We already pay enough in additional gas taxes because we use more gas due to lack of transit. I think this model represents double-taxation on Langley.
