Big Presentation Today In Chilliwack

Today South Fraser OnTrax delivered this presentation to the Fraser Valley Regional District' (FVRD's) Transportation & Transit Technical Working Group (FVRD, Ministry of Transportation, TransLink, BC Transit, Fraser Valley Region Direct, City of Chilliwack, City of Abbotsford and others) this morning as part of a stakeholder meeting for the Fraser Valley rail study that I posted on earlier.

The presentation was delivered by Joe Zaccaria and Township of Langley Councillor Jordan Bateman. South Fraser OnTrax would like to thank Councillor Bateman for several hours of his time in consultation and speaking in Chilliwack today. Some of his research was also very valuable to us. It was a powerful message and seemed well-received by this technical audience of very experienced engineers, municipal planners and related experts.

I'm glad to hear the presentation went well. You might want to talk to the guy who produced that map of existing rail rights of way about a few mistakes. Even though Google's satellite images of Metro Vancouver are a few years old, they clearly show buildings in Richmond lying across the path of former rail lines. In one case I believe a large high school or community centre is in the way now. That city has done an amazing job of cutting up their old rail lines into chunks that can never be re-assembled. You should make sure you're not using outdated information in your presentations lest your opponents use it against you.
