Commentary
It is fairly obvious from this survey that Tri-City residents want Skytrain. It is also quite obvious that residents are also abundantly aware of the increase in 'violent crime' in the region, and the additional crime that Skytrain will ultimately bring What isn't clear is why Coquitlam Mayor John Kingsbury has wasted so much time on the location issue as this relates to the construction of Skytrain. None of the respondents were told the Lougheed corridor was a less expensive alternative, yet they nearly all selected this location anyhow
Its obvious that residents in the Tri-City region of Vancouver, which included Coquitlam City, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody are of the opinion that building Skytrain is important to them. The chosen route is along the Lougheed corridor. Although respondents overwhelmingly agree that crime is on the rise, it is undercertain whether or not their selection of a Skytrain route is related to increased crime.
