“We’ve agreed to meet and discuss the future of the Arbutus Corridor.”
That’s music to the ears of many garden owners who are against CP Rail repairing tracks along the corridor.
The City of Vancouver released a statement this morning saying track work has been suspended because both sides are going to sit down and talk.
CP Spokesperson Breanne Siegel wouldn’t give much detail about why now – after telling residents to clear their stuff from CP Land along the corridor and already having begun work on the tracks – they’ve stoppped all of that and decided to talk with the city.
“CP is a willing participant in these meetings and we’ve always said that if there was an opportunity to have some productive discussions that we’d be willing to do so, and this is that opportunity.”
In the statement, the City says both sides will sit down in the next two or three weeks.
