Count Gregor Robertson among those not happy with the provincial budget released yesterday.
Vancouver’s Mayor says there were some good things released on the budget.
Among them, the initial steps being taken to collect more data on the real estate market.
He says a new luxury sales tax category is good, but any revenue generated should be going towards helping low to modest income households.
Robertson says though, as chair of the Mayor’s Council for Regional Transportation he is disappointed to once again see nothing for new transit, not just for his city but the region overall.
He adds trying to address affordability while ignoring transit is “simply counterproductive”.
