2011 Civic Election Candidates Discuss Metro Vancouver’s Transportation Future

Speakers:
George Affleck (NPA)
Adriane Carr (Green Party of Vancouver)
Councillor Geoff Meggs (Vision Vancouver)
Elizabeth Murphy (NSV)
Councillor Ellen Woodsworth (COPE)

Transportation forms the backbone of every city and region. With an efficient and effective transportation network, we can easily reach our jobs and school, access shopping locations, and transport goods throughout the region. How will our new city councils improve the way we move and access places and who will pay for these changes? What will Metro Vancouver’s transportation future look like? Join Connecting Environmental Professionals, Sustainable Transportation Coalition, SFU’s City Program and the Planning Institute of British Columbia as we pose these important questions to Vancouver mayoral and council candidates.

The forum will be moderated by Gordon Price, Director of the SFU City Program and spokesperson for the Sustainable Transportation Coalition. After a short introductory statement from each candidate, Gordon will pose three questions – one about transportation network funding and the recent decision of the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation, the second about goods movement, and the third about active transportation. Finally, audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions.

Monday, November 7, 7-9 pm
SFU Segal Graduate School of Business
500 Granville Street, Vancouver

  1. Sounds like an excellent event! Any idea if there was a video recording that may be available online? If so please let me know I am sorry I couldn’t attend in person. However the twitter conversation via #vantransp2011 does provide a nice overview! Thanks for your great work Gordon.
