Re: Bridge vote sought, Sept. 26.
Of course those who will not use the new proposed Highway 99 bridge on a regular basis will not want it, but I bet every now and then they do now use the tunnel for convenience, and will use the bridge later for the same reason.
The building of the bridge is for the good of the greater community which we are all part of. If we did not build such things, whatever the cost is, what would we have – a Third World and a place of which we will not be proud of enough to say, “you see what we can do?”
Unfortunately, we seem to have gotten to the stage where everything these days is subject to some kind of toll – not that I agree with all of them – but it does spread the tax base more equitably by ‘user pay.’
Look at the Port Mann Bridge, are we not now happy with it in its function? I am.
