The GVCC, along with Walk On, WE Bike and the Greater Victoria Placemaking Network, wrote a joint letter of support (PDF) for the 2 cent/litre hike to the commission. We hope that the new provincial government honours Victoria’s request to expand transit in the region and will work with the newly-created Better Transit Alliance to help make that...
