“Our transit system is one of the best and most efficient in the world.”
That’s according to Peter Fassbender, the provincial minister responsible for TransLink, who gave a speech at “Rethinking the Region 4” in New Westminster this weekend. But he added, it’s problems cannot be addressed by simply writing a cheque. (That’s reserved for this.)
Other comments of note:
- I am not prepared to change governance again – except to make the existing one work better.
- We don’t want to lose window of opportunity with federal money. Let’s get on with short-term issues.
- Someone has to make a decision. You’ll never get to consensus on everything.
- My goal is to deliver a world class transportation system to meet the needs of the region in the future.
