Wednesday’s Evergreen Line announcement drew a crowd of politicians, as well as representatives of companies awarded pre-construction contracts, to the Port Moody Station on the West Coast Express Line. While federal, provincial and municipal representatives spoke about the line moving ahead, Port Moody-Coquitlam byelection candidate Christine Clarke was less enthusiastic. She issued a press release criticizing the gas tax that will fund the line, as well as delays that have plagued the project.

“We’ve seen years of inaction. The Tri-Cities is tired of waiting.” Clarke also criticized the two-cent-per-litre gas tax that will be used to partially fund the project. “Not only will the project be two years late, but the gas tax the Liberals and mayors cooked up will make life more expensive for everyone in the Lower Mainland,” said Clarke, the BC Conservatives’ municipal affairs and transit critic. “Instead of asking municipalities and TransLink to find savings of only one per cent of their budgets to pay for their contribution to the project, the Liberals and the NDP supported a two-cent-per-litre gas tax for everyone. A vote for the BC Conservatives in the Port Moody-Coquitlam byelection is a vote against the gas tax, which will raise prices across our region.” For more information about the Evergreen Line, visit www. evergreenline.gov.bc.ca.
