Transportation Referendum: Lessons Learned from the Front Line

Speaker: Carl Guardino, Silicon Valley Leadership Group
January 19, 7–9 pm PST
Room 1400, SFU Harbour Centre, 515 W. Hastings St., Vancouver
Admission is free, but reservations are required. ReserveThis lecture will be live webcast. Reservations not required for webcast.

A healthy and competitive economy relies on efficient transportation. In Metro Vancouver, we are increasingly facing some of the worst traffic congestion in Canada. The region’s mayors have developed a Transportation and Transit Plan to cut congestion; keep people, jobs and our economy moving, and accommodate a million more people expected here by 2040.

This spring, Metro Vancouver voters will have a say on these proposed transportation and transit improvements through a referendum—the first of its kind in Canada.

Carl Guardino is widely lauded as one of the most influential forces on transportation policy and funding in the San Francisco and Silicon Valley area, where such ballot measures are routine and have successfully funded major transportation improvements.

Carl will share lessons learned from a region that has been recognized for its progress and innovation, and how this experience might help engage and inform Metro Vancouver residents as we weigh the important decision before us. Details/Registration
