BE IT RESOLVED by the Members of COPE that a public statement be made by COPE executive summing up the debate on the 2015 Transportation and Transit Plebiscite on March 29th that includes:
1. A strong criticism of the process that gave rise to the Regional Transportation Investments, a Vision for Metro Vancouver – aka the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation]and the plebiscite because it excluded working people from setting the agenda and that it divides the polity on a complex question;
2. Further we call for ongoing discussions on how to develop the Lower Mainland on a rational and sustainable basis; and
3. We urge citizens and COPE members to vote according to their conscience.
