Grant on the Mike Smyth Show: Housing problems, Widening Highway 1 through the Fraser Valley, & Banning pit-bulls?

You have no choice but to travel the highway if you want to go east.

“With that increase of population to the Fraser Valley comes increased traffic and obviously Highway 1 being 2 lanes each way can’t handle the increase in traffic.”

“It’s a critical, critical commuter route, it’s a critical route for truck traffic. Obviously there’s a great case there to widen the highway as fast as possible and get those shovels in the ground, out to Chilliwack as well.”

“Well the intent of the HOV lane when it first came out was, what’s the definition of HOV, High Occupancy Vehicle right, the whole intent was to encourage people to carpool, to decrease the amount of cars on the road, to decrease rush hour congestion.”

“Giving electric vehicles a free ride in the HOV lane, again, defeats the intent of the High Occupancy Lane”
