New Transit Referendum Film: “Our Story. Our Future.”



In the coming months, Metro Vancouver residents will be voting on a new transportation package proposed by The Mayor’s Council. A successful “yes” vote in this plebiscite will be a triumph; its failure a historic loss. One way or another, we will be deciding the future of our region, including our quality of lives, economy, environment, and the prospects for our children. It’s that big a deal.

The creative team at Modacity – under the leadership of  SFU City Program Director Gordon Price – produced this short film, making the case for this crucial investment in a first-class transportation system. It tells the story of how we managed to build one of the most liveable cities in the world, and how this single decision will shape our future for decades to come.
