A council of mayors in Metro Vancouver is working to persuade residents to get on board with a new tax to fund transit upgrades. The coalition says something must be done to accommodate the influx of one million new residents and their cars to the city over the next 30 years. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore says if residents vote against the tax, the only option will be to keep the current system in place. (The mayors say there will be 600-thousand more cars on the roads unless there is adequate transportation put in place to provide an alternative.)
