BC's Translink demands a congestion tax for Vancouver

BC's Translink demands a congestion tax for Vancouver

BC Director Kris Sims is encouraging motorists to push back on the Mobility Pricing Independent Commission recommendation proposing new taxes and tolls in the name of reducing traffic congestion.

The panel created by Translink, and its working group, dubbed "It's Time," have been holding meetings for months pushing for tolls at bridges and tunnels and a tax-per-kilometre for commuters into and around Vancouver.

Kris says if Translink wants to take more of our money they should need to win a referendum first.
