It's been noted that expanding highways to relieve congestion is like loosening your belt to relieve obesity. It doesn't address the real problem. So my change is to make sure that the Port Mann Bridge doesn't get twinned and Highway One doesn't get widened.
I'm not claiming this as my own personal change but I'm one of many people working toward making sure we in the Lower Mainland have long-term, sustainable, reasonably priced transportation solutions to get people and goods (not necessarily cars) across the Fraser River, rather than twinning the Port Mann Bridge and widening Highway One.
