Your YES vote will change everything

Pledge your yes vote

Imagine your commute this morning: the gridlock, the aging infrastructure, the time wasted. Imagine the trucks stuck in lines of cars unable to get their goods moving and moms squeezing strollers onto crowded buses. Imagine the lost productivity and the lost moments with the people you love. Across Metro Vancouver we all suffer the same frustration, congestion, and lost opportunity.

On March 16th, you’ll receive a piece of mail that can change all this. Your choice: vote to get the region moving again with better transit and improved transportation infrastructure.

YES to protecting the environment for future generations.

...this referendum is one of the most important decisions facing our region, for the economy, environment, health and our quality of life.

—Peter Robinson
CEO David Suzuki Foundation

Over the next 30 years over one million people will move to Metro Vancouver. It’s our responsibility to make sure we handle this growth in a sustainable and healthy way. The Mayors' Council Plan is the single most important thing we can do to mitigate climate change, reduce congestion and make sure we can thrive without sacrificing the environment and our own health.

Less than 35¢ a day will save us billions.

When you receive your ballot it will ask you:

Do you support a new 0.5% Metro Vancouver Congestion Improvement Tax, to be dedicated to the Mayors’ Transportation and Transit Plan?

The Metro Vancouver Congestion Improvement Tax will cost you less than 35 cents per day. This investment will have a lasting impact on the economy of the region, as goods and services move more easily, as we can grow sustainably, and as we stop wasting untold hours of time stuck in gridlock.

The cost of doing nothing is billions in lost revenue and productivity. The cost of inaction is a price we can’t afford.

 

YES to an improved lifestyle across Metro Vancouver...

...for seniors,

The Mayors' Council Plan is designed to provide more accessible, reliable service. HandyDART service will increase by 30% and service will reach communities that are currently suffering from lack of service. Upgraded facilities and more service means more mobility for seniors.

...students,

I’m voting yes for better SkyTrain service and a faster way to get to university every day.

—Vineet Kaur
UBC Student
RICHMOND

...and families.

The Mayors' Plan includes upgrading of over 2,300km of roadways and improving intersections. Transit facility upgrades will focus on safer walking and waiting for improved safety. Whether your family commutes by car or transit, the plan will make your commute shorter, safer, and greener.
