Re. “Coquitlam has too much parking near SkyTrain stations, says city staff” (Tri-City News, July 10)
The idea that too much parking near public transit is an issue has no relevance to anyone but developers hoping to cut costs. In fact, the opposite is true, there should be much more available parking near public transport to encourage as many people as possible to either leave their cars at home, or not to take their vehicles downtown.
What happened to the thought that we could try to improve our world? Has it been abandoned so a developer can make a profit of an additional .0005%?
