Part of the YES side argument is that 1 million more people are projected to move into the GVRD, of this 1 million people 60% according to the plan will live outside the Vancouver area, as the transit outside the Vancouver area is the worst part of this transit system now and will still remain the worst with a yes vote, that means 600,000 more people will need to commute by vehicle, how is this transit system going to improve congestion with this being projected. How is 3.5 Billion being spent on a subway system in Vancouver going to help the 600,000 people moving anywhere but Vancouver? Over 1/2 the population of the GVRD live outside the Vancouver area and are forced to either spend two to four hours a day using transit now, or drive so they have time to spend with their families, just think what it will be like for these same people who live outside the Vancouver area with another 600,000 people added to the mix and very limited transit improvements to the greater GVRD!
