City Seeks Input on Proposed Changes to Burrard Bridge


On Monday, the City of Vancouver announced plans to reduce the number of northbound car lanes on the Burrard Street Bridge from three lanes to two. The City also plans to reconfigure the intersection at Pacific Street on the bridge’s north end, which they say will improve traffic flow and safety.

The public consultation period for feedback on this plan is short and it comes at a very busy time of year for most people. There will be only two brief open house meetings on June 6th and 16th before Council is asked to make a decision in July.

The quickest and most convenient way for you to let the City know your views about its plans for the Burrard Bridge is to complete the city’s short online survey here.

    The city does *NOT* seek PUBLIC input.

    They directly emailed their political supporters immediately when this survey was made available. This in order to stack the deck with favorable feedback.

    Then they use this stacked “public input” for justification of their actions.

    “Public consultation” is a not much more than a dog-and-pony show pretending to be democratic process.
