Vision Councilors Heather Deal and Andrea Reimer are reported to oppose investigating injuries on the
. Burrard Bridge
Coun. Deal and Reimer are using the “enormous” cost of such a study as an excuse for ignoring the safety of commuters.
In fact, all it takes to find out about injuries to
Vancouver commuters on the is to ask ICBC - ICBC provides the data free of charge. Burrard Bridge
Unfortunately for the 95% of commuters that travel by bus, car and taxi, deliveries and services , ICBC report shows 31% increase in injuries in 2009 and 20% increase in 2010.

This underlines the incompetence of Vision Councillor Heather Deal and Andrea Reimer who would spend enormous amounts of your tax dollars rather then ask a simple question.
