"Innovation Avenue?" "A high tech hub?" << Sounds like a PR puff piece from the 1980's.

"A stadium?" << Without any anchor tenant arrangements and major sports figures in BC don't know one word about it?

Sounds like someone from the 20th-century has landed in Surrey and expects to get billions from the BC Government.

If I was Surrey, I'd just be quietly thankful that the new Premier axed the bridge tolls (the right move) which has cost them quite enough political capital, thank you very much.

Extending Skytrain to Abbotsford Airport and a second extension from King George Station to White Rock Centre makes light-years more sense. But it isn't as 'sexy' as 'high tech hubs' or empty sports stadiums, I'll give you that.
