McGarrigle said Metro Vancouver can’t “afford” to lose the vote to the No side (where) “we buy into a future where all taxes are bad, where public services are starved of funds, where our roads aren’t upgraded and where transit can’t keep up.  And we can give into a future where the gloom of cynicism descends over the region like a stifling blanket while congestion increasingly costs us all more time and more money and more expensive choices down the road.”
