For transit before he was against it

Do di do doo…

The future of transit in Langley is light rail, one Langley Township councillor says. Now Langley Councillor X just has to convince his fellow local, regional, provincial and federal politicians that he’s right. “Transit works if you have a spine,” said Councillor X. “Langley’s transit spine is 200th Street.” Township Mayor Kurt Alberts has spoken to Councillor X about the plan, and he agrees that light rail could have a place in Langley’s future.
