thePodcast: New West councillor Fontaine wants “Snowmaggedon” 2022 to be the last

For the week of Dec. 4, 2022:

Hundreds, if not thousands, of commuters were stuck overnight in gridlock Nov. 29-30 when winter arrived.

New Westminster City Councillor Daniel Fontaine (Zoom)

Why did so many municipalities and the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure fail to prepare and respond effectively to a snowstorm that affected bridges and roads vital to so many in the Lower Mainland? 

New Westminster City Councillor Daniel Fontaine remembers the City of Vancouver’s 2008 “Snowmaggedon.” Back then, he was co-publisher of the CityCaucus blog. Fontaine wants the 2022 version, that affected many more, to be the last. His solution? Begin with a “snow summit” to bring politicians and senior staff together to determine what went wrong and how they can do right the next time.

Fontaine is host Bob Mackin’s guest on this edition of thePodcast.

Plus Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines and a commentary.
