Town hall meeting with Mayor Jack Froese over transit tax plans

The meeting will take place Monday from 7 to 8 p.m., and people can take part from home.

Mayors from two of the region’s fastest-growing cities — Surrey and Coquitlam — pleaded for a transit referendum ‘yes’ vote with mostly skeptical local callers in back-to-back telephone town halls last week.

Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner was joined Thursday evening by White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin, while Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart took calls Wednesday with Vancouver Board of Trade CEO Iain Black.

A similar meeting is planned on Monday, March 16 with Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese. It will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. The dial in phone number is 1-877-229-8493 and the access code is 114095#.
