'We won't pay for SkyTrain'

Editor: Good for you, Mayor Moonbeam. You go right ahead and build another TransLink SkyTrain along Broadway — but don’t you even think about asking us out here in Langley to pay for it.  I’m tired of paying for services north of the Fraser River, and if any one of the mayors south of the Fraser supports your plan, and it will cost us (south of the Fraser) any money, they can kiss their mayoral position goodbye.

If you want to provide that service, then those who use it can pay for it.  That’s the way it should be for all the transit service. This will not be built using my money.

D. Atkinson,

Langley
