    • Estimated annual savings to Greater Vancouver commuters of $76Million
    • Economic Impact of over 288,000 FTE Canadian Jobs and an increase of $21.3 Billion to Canada’s GDP
    • Enhanced Gateway security resiliency and diversity
    • Unlocking land potential and economic growth for the ever-increasing Vancouver Island population
