They are even starting to lobby the CampbellClarkMcLeanKinsellaMorganShepardSmearSite Government for more funding.
And that includes the Condo Kings!
Frances Bula has the story. Below are a couple of bites out of her lede:
Alarmed by the increasingly shambolic state of transit financing in the Lower Mainland, local business groups are quietly launching special lobbying efforts and task forces to try to find a more coherent approach...
...“It just seems to be going around and around with no solutions,” said Anne McMullin, chief executive officer of the Urban Development Institute, which represents the region’s major condo and commercial developers. “But it’s access to transit that makes people looking at our products want to buy.”
Her group has begun visiting Victoria to lobby for a more logical approach to transit funding...
But here's the thing.
Are they (ie. the lobbyists) telling Ms. Clark's minions that their masters would be willing to help pay for it?
The transit, I mean.
And yes, the 'Urban Design Institute' is a real thing....Why, they even generate press rel.....errrrr...'publications', 'reports', 'presentations' and 'analyses' and everything.
