United Truck­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion to re­ceive truck park­ing plans from all Sur­rey and Delta May­oral Can­di­dates

Asian Journal - - BRITISH COLUMBIA -

Sur­rey: A week­end mem­ber­ship meet­ing of the UTA con­ducted over the week­end se­cured com­mit­ments from all ma­jor May­oral can­di­dates run­ning in the cities of Sur­rey and Delta. Tom Gill, Bruce Hayne and Doug Mccal­lum from Sur­rey, and Sylvia Bishop, Ge­orge Harvie and Jim Cess­ford from Delta, all had the op­por­tu­nity to speak to UTA mem­bers di­rectly re­gard­ing their vi­sion to pro­vide bet­ter park­ing ac­com­mo­da­tions in the city in which they are run­ning. Com­mit­ments made ver­bally are eas­ily for­got­ten, how­ever, and that is why the UTA has re­quested writ­ten plans from all can­di­dates by Oc­to­ber 16th, ac­cord­ing to UTA spokesper­son Ga­gan Singh. “We heard some fan­tas­tic prom­ises, but it is im­por­tant for our or­ga­ni­za­tion to re­ceive a writ­ten plan so that we can hold those who are elected to ac­count,” says Singh. “We in­tend to make the re­sponse pub­licly avail­able for ev­ery­one to read, which for our truck­ing com­mu­nity, should have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on the way your mem­bers cast their bal­lots.”

All can­di­dates in at­ten­dance agreed to pro­vid­ing their pol­icy pro­pos­als, and the UTA is fol­low­ing up on this com­mit­ment with an email that will be sent to all cam­paigns this morn­ing.
