Q6 - Will you commit to building a public transit system that is rapid, reliable, affordable and accessible for all users, with proper transit routes within rural, suburban and lower income communities?

Jeff Leiper

Yes. The process of designing, building, and running the LRT has been plagued with major problems. There has been a failure of leadership and a failure to take responsibility. With major changes coming to City leadership with this election, we should be pushing to ensure that nothing like that is allowed to happen again. Major projects must be done transparently, not in secret. I am looking forward to the results of the ongoing inquiry, which hopefully will allow us to identify clearly what went wrong and avoid repeating these mistakes. I have been a strong voice for accountability over the LRT and will continue to do so. More generally, convenient, affordable, electrified transit will be one of the City's most important contributions to reducing greenhouse gases; I am looking forward to continuing the work of championing a more affordable system, and post-pandemic re-thinking who our transit system serves and how is one of the most exciting prospects of the new term.
