Metro Vancouver’s transportation referendum: a North Delta perspective
What are the benefits for North Delta residents if we pass the transit referendum? SFU Centre for Dialogue's Assistant to the Director, Shea O'Neil, has written a blog post titled "Metro Vancouver’s transportation referendum: a North Delta perspective".
"When I think about the choice to be made in the upcoming Metro Vancouver Transit and Transportation referendum, I think about the positive impact this will have on our environment by substantially reducing air pollution and carbon emissions. I think about our health and how those who commute by transit, biking, or walking have 33% lower odds of being overweight or obese compared to those who commute by car. I think about the approximate $ 1.2 billion in potential economic benefits we are at risk of losing if it doesn’t pass."
