  1. Darren Davis just happens, by complete coincidence, to be taking an on-line Cities & Transportation SFU course being taught by:

    Gordon H Price
    Tamim Raad
    Todd Litman
    Anthony Perl
    Peter V Hall
    Sandra James
    Tara Gallen
    Jaime Boan
    Jeffrey Tumlin

  2. My point is easy for most to see. Darren Davis is prented as someone from afar that knows and just lovesTransLink. When, in fact, he’s both studying AND teaching at Simon Fraser University. Don’t forget, Montgomery was, or is, working for TransLink too.

    It’s one big happy family. Dense cities. Tall buildings housing workers, linked by trains, surrounded by pure pastoral greenery. It’s a sci-if dream swallowed whole because of a religious fear of hot weather contrived because of a hate of corporations that produce energy products. Ever since man learned to control and ride a horse he has desired his own transportation carrier, except when group travel is comfortable and efficient. The occasional bus isn’t going to change much.

  3. “It’s a sci-if dream swallowed whole because of a religious fear of hot weather contrived because of a hate of corporations that produce energy products.”

    Wow, tough to combine that much ignorance, stupidity, fear mongering and irrational generalization into one sentence–congrats!

    1. Do you seriously think those Climate Scientologists from the Church of the Ecopalypse can change the weather by spending taxpayer funds on wind and solar gambles? Ho, ho, ho.

      The Kool-Aid circle. Darrel is embarrassing himself in his feeble attempt to appear objective, when he’s in fact part of the gang.

      It’s like those big ads on TransLink buses where TransLink tells us that they are near the top in cost-efficient and service and “an excellent financial performer”, when compared to other big city transportation companies, as stated by the Imperial College London. In fact this group is not very big at all It’s just 14 members and Coast Mountain Bus Company is one of the them! They give each other big international awards. And we pay for it all!

      1. With this example of deeply intellectual analysis you could apply for a position as TransLink CEO and reinvent the entire organization.
