Traffic safety advocate spearheading ‘no bridge toll for B.C.’ campaign

Gary Hee hopes to hand out 1,000 bumper stickers on Saturday while conducting a drive for the local food bank

Gary Hee is planning to hand out 1,000 bumper stickers on Saturday as part of his campaign to see tolls removed from B.C. bridges in favour of a flat licensing fee.

Local traffic safety advocate Gary Hee is hoping to build on his ‘no bridge tolls for B.C.’ campaign this Saturday, Nov. 14 when he sets up near the gas station beside the Real Canadian Superstore at noon.

Out of his own pocket, Hee has made 1,000 bumper stickers saying “No Bridge Tolls in BC” with his website www.nobridgetollsinbc.com attached to it. He is hoping to hand the bumper stickers out out on Saturday.

He is tying in his efforts with a food bank drive, hoping people will bring a donation or cash with all proceeds going to a Langley based food bank.

Hee believes drivers shouldn’t be burdened by the high cost of tolls. He proposes that a $40 fee should be applied to everybody’s licence plate costs when renewing insurance instead.

He’s collected 1,045 signatures from people opposed to tolls.

He also had a meeting about the burden of tolls with Cloverdale MLA Stephanie Cadieux on Friday.

Hee lives off 72 Avenue in Clayton Heights and fought to get traffic lights and other safety measures installed along that busy stretch of road.

He campaigned both the City of Surrey and the Township and a traffic light was expedited and installed at 196 Street.
