Ports a major cause of transportation congestion

The federal government needs to be paying for more of the improvements needed in the Lower Mainland.

Editor: No wonder our roads and bridges are congested. Our harbour serves as a major transportation hub for the rest of Canada.

All those goods land at the ports, and are then transported via truck, rail, ferry, and courier to the rest of B.C. and Canada. To put the burden on the taxpayers of the Lower Mainland to cough up tax money is just wrong.

TransLink should go after the feds for further funding. Why should we carry the bill when the rest of B.C. and Canada benefits?
