There is no money for light rail in Valley

Editor: John Winter argues (The Times, July 24) that the mayors should consider light rail for the Valley, but I wonder if he has been following the news lately.

The public has just rejected a proposal to implement a tax to fund the region’s portion of the mayors’ plan for improving the transportation infrastructure  throughout Metro Vancouver.

That plan included a light rail system in Langley and Surrey. Bottom line, there is no money for light rail for the Valley.
