The state of the Arbutus Corridor and whether or not a railway train will go through there once again continues to be a hot topic of discussion for local residents.

In a letter to Arbutus Corridor residents Mayor Gregor Robertson has reiterated his firm opposition to cargo trains on the route, explaining the City of Vancouver is prepared to pay fair market value for the land.

Robertson has hopes to turn it in to some form of a greenway, instead of a CP railway.

In 2005, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the City’s right to determine how land within Vancouver can be used.

Still no word on if and when any changes will come to the corridor.

    • The courts said Vancouver had the right to decide about the land,oh! I forgot with you of the right you do not ever follow what the courts order just the rest of us! Maybe we should ask the FN if they want CP running trains all hours of the day and night in kits& 41st! It is right wing territory!
