If you live in metro Vancouver, your mailbox contains the chance to voice your opinion on the transit referendum. Whatever you think will be neatly expressed by one of two words: yes, or no.
If you vote "yes," you vote for the expansion of public transit services. As metro Vancouver looks forward to an additional one million people, transportation will play a key role in supporting and shaping the urban development necessary to accommodate the demographic increase.
Implicit in your choice is support for the existing development paradigm. The concern is that this development model could displace those who will most benefit from transportation expansions.
