Commentary
Richmond respondents, who do not work in Vancouver, will not utilize the proposed RAV Line. The infrequent number of times they travel to Vancouver, they will use their automobile. Only a small fraction of respondents will use the RAV Line instead of their vehicle, once the RAV line is constructed.
An overwhelming majority of respondents DO NOT believe the RAV line is a benefit to them personally.
An overwhelming majority of respondents DO NOT believe that Federal MP Herb Dhaliwal's is operating in a potential conflict of interest relating to his role as the lead Federal negotiator on RAV Line funding, and his financial interest in a limousine service transporting passengers to and from the Vancouver airport.
An overwhelming majority of respondents DO NOT believe that Federal MP Herb Dhaliwal's is operating in a potential conflict of interest relating to his role as the lead Federal negotiator on RAV Line funding, and his financial interest in a limousine service transporting passengers to and from the Vancouver airport.
One respondent, who has worked at the airport for decades, called the conflict allegation “ridiculous”. He said that people who are travelling through the Airport will not use the RAV line because of luggage and convenience, particularly on holidays.
These respondents in the three Richmond BC constituencies have little use for the proposed RAV line personally, do not travel to Vancouver frequently, and do not accept accusations that MP Dhaliwal is in a potential conflict.
