Paton questions Trevena on Budget priorities re: Massey Tunnel

Today in Question Period, Delta South MLA Ian Paton pressed Transportation Minister Claire Trevena on whether or not Tuesday’s Budget would include a replacement for the George Massey Tunnel. She refused to provide an answer.

Paton is concerned that last week’s announcement of a new Pattullo Bridge—while needed— effectively means the NDP has shelved any plans to replace the aging, seismically-unsafe Massey Tunnel.

Paton was also unsuccessful in getting answers from Trevena as to whether the federal government was approached to cover some of the costs of the Pattullo Bridge project.
