Delta hasn't consulted taxpayers about bridge


Opening my copy of the Vancouver Sun I was astonished to see a full page that had been purchased by the Corporation of Delta to support the construction of the 10-lane replacement bridge for the George Massey Tunnel.

How much taxpayer money did this cost? Has there been a full consultation with Delta residents about this bridge proposal? Sometimes, and maybe too often, the wishes of those in government are in conflict with what we wish. In the bridge case, there is ample evidence that the community is very disturbed at the prospect of this huge bridge.

Delta's mayor and councillors support the project, but I do not think they are representing the views of the residents. They have not consulted us. The use of our money to propagandize us is disgusting. We need a public hearing on this project.
