Sechelt Candidate Transportation Questionnaire Responses


TraC reached out to Sechelt candidates to gauge how they would support active transportation and transit if elected.  We kept the questionnaire short and easy to answer to increase the chance they would compete it in the four days we gave then.  We hope you find it useful.
