Borrow $8 billion for Fraser Valley rail link, Abbotsford mayor urges province All Abbotsford’s mayor wants from the provincial government is up to $8 billion for transportation in the Fraser Valley. That sum sounds like a lot of money because, again, it’s $8 billion. But Mayor Henry Braun told council Monday that he thinks a rapid transit link to Abbotsford is (relatively) affordable and can be done if the province is as ambitious as a pair of legendary British Columbia politicians. “WAC Bennett and Phil Gaglardi were some people who made some bold moves. I think the present provincial government needs to make some bold moves and one of them would be commuter rail,” Braun said after a council discussion on feedback that Abbotsford will send to TransLink as that body shapes its plans for the next 30 years. https://www.abbynews.com/news/borrow-8-billion-for-fraser-valley-rail-link-abbotsford-mayor-urges-province/ 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
