Tanker traffic through Vancouver and all along the BC coast should not be expanded - the risk of a spill is too high. This pipeline should not be built - the climate impacts are too large. We need to invest at every level in a just transition to a clean energy economy.
We believe the choices we make around transportation impact our health and wellness, and that our transportation options are achieved intentionally through public planning and design. OneCity would like to see the option of taking transit become more affordable and more accessible across Vancouver.
Tanker traffic through Vancouver and all along the BC coast should not be expanded - the risk of a spill is too high. This pipeline should not be built - the climate impacts are too large. Our members and candidates have been active in community resistance to the expansion, and will use all the tools available, as locally elected leaders, to ensure that it doesn't get built.
OneCity endorses the AllOnBoard Campaign to make public transit more accessible. We support free transit for children and youth up to the age of 18, and a sliding-scale, monthly pass based on income for adults.
Getting around Vancouver is expensive. Low-income Vancouverites often spend more than 50% of their income on housing, leaving little for other necessities such as transportation. Living close to a transit hub makes life easier and more affordable for people, but these locations are often very expensive. OneCity plans to act quickly to create complete, mixed communities around transit hubs and corridors.
