Metro Vancouver is being warned its plan to tighten the limit on sulphur dioxide air pollution in the region could threaten the viability of the region's last local oil refinery.
Chevron says its Burnaby refinery is being unfairly targeted by regional district staff, who have proposed a reduced ambient air quality guideline for sulphur dioxide that could force costly upgrades.

Metro Vancouver mayors aim to introduce road pricing, which could replace the current system of tolling only new bridges with consistent tolls on all existing crossings, or per-kilometre road use charges on all major routes.
So is that idea also scuttled if Metro voters defeat the proposed 0.5-per-cent sales tax increase that would fund transit expansion across the region?

No forces say a new Pattullo Bridge shouldn't be on the ballot at all – that it's merely bait to lure drivers to vote Yes in the referendum for an otherwise transit-heavy plan. So will a new Patttullo come even if voters defeat the proposed 0.5 per cent sales tax increase to fund transportation upgrades?
