That would be a terrible idea.....every city needs road capacity, not that we should build more in Vancouver but we should maintain what we have now.
A better idea would be to raise the gas tax, introduce a per-km driven car insurance plan system, and introduce electronic tolls at all the major crossings in the region between 6am to 7pm:
CAR - $2.50; CARGO TRUCK - $5.00; COMMERCIAL VEHICLE/COACH BUS - $5.00
- Arthur Laing Bridge
- Oak Street Bridge
- Knight Street Bridge
- Alex Fraser Bridge
- Golden Ears Bridge
- Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing
- Lions Gate Bridge
- Pattullo Bridge
- Pitt River Bridge
- Port Mann Bridge
- Queensborough Bridge
- George Massey Tunnel
- Sea-to-Sky Highway at Eaglebluffs Ridge
Tolling would be done electronically, where cameras would scan your license plate as your car zooms past the electronic tolling station without stopping.
I like how you've effectively cut off Richmond from any other suburbs around it.
Now let's all take a step backwards and go back to the feudal system.
