Upcoming Event: Learn about the Mayors' Plan for Transit and Transportation in Langley

Where will you be during the evening of Wednesday, March 4th? If you don’t have plans, stop by Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Langley Campus.

On March 16th, Elections BC will start mailing out ballots for the Metro Vancouver Transportation and Transit Plebiscite. Citizens in the region will have the chance to vote on whether they want to increase PST by 0.5% to help fund $7.5 billion in transportation improvements across the region.

In Langley, increasing transit service and improving roads is always a hot topic. What will the mayors’ plan do for people who living in Langley? What does this mean for residents in Langley if the majority of people vote yes? What does it mean if people vote no? What does it mean for you and your family?

Come and learn about our mayors’ plan for improving transportation in Langley, the South of Fraser, and the rest of Metro Vancouver. People from the Mayors’ Council will be presenting the facts about their plan. After, there will be time to look over the plan in detail, and ask questions about it to Mayors’ Council staff.

This is one of the few opportunities to learn about the plebiscite in a casual and accessible atmosphere.

Wednesday, March 4th
Kwantlen Polytechnic University
Auditorium - 20901 Langley Bypass
Doors open at: 6:30pm
Presentation start at: 7:00pm
