Headline from Global: “Former minister responsible for TransLink still supports LRT …:

Suggested revision:

Former minister whose government imposed a referendum to ensure rapid-transit would never get funded in Metro Vancouver now thinks a ton of money should be spent to get it to his riding.

What percent of voters in Langley opposed funding for Translink?

75 percent.

That was Peter Fassbender’s riding – the BC Liberal minister responsible for Translink at the time.  He’s now running for mayor of the City of Langley.

Before he says anything else, it’s time he apologized for that disastrous referendum (which looks to have resulted in millions more in costs) and acknowledges the political cynicism that rationalized it.
