Not surprised by mayor's reaction
When I read that 20 of Greater Vancouver’s 21 mayors had agreed on a new comprehensive transportation plan I knew without reading the story that it would be Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan who was opposed.
He is the most obstructive and least co-operative person I have ever encountered. He opposed the Pacific Gateway Project that widened Highway 1 and built the new Port Mann Bridge.
Almost no new low income housing has been built in Burnaby in the last 15 years because he refuses to co-operate with the province. The list goes on. He seems opposed to everything and is unable to work constructively with anyone.
Just once I would like to read that Mayor Corrigan was working co-operatively to solve our problems rather than working overtime to prevent others from doing so.
