VDLC Endorses #AllOnBoard Campaign

The VDLC endorses the #AllOnBoard campaign and its objective of promoting equitable access to public transit for all. 

At our September 18 regular meeting we adopted the following motion: 

BECAUSE the #AllOnBoard campaign advocates for affordable and accessible public transit based on income in Metro Vancouver, specifically for free transit for children and youth (age 0-18) and monthly passes on a sliding scale based on income; and

BECAUSE the objectives of the campaign compliment our desire to promote an affordable, livable region for working people and to combat poverty; and

BECAUSE the campaign is endorsed by several of our affiliates and allies, including Burnaby Teacher’ Association, BC Poverty Reduction Coalition, Women Transforming Cities, OneCity, COPE candidates Jean Swanson, Derrick O’Keefe, and Anne Roberts, and First Call,

THE VANCOUVER AND DISTRICT LABOUR COUNCIL WILL endorse the #AllOnBoard campaign and promote it and its objectives.
