SURREY, B.C. — It's a promise that's no doubt grabbed the attention of drivers.

Speaking at the BC NDP’s campaign kickoff in Surrey Sunday, leader John Horgan pledged to get rid of tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridge if elected.

In a press release, Horgan says the promise is part of the NDP's priority to make life more affordable for families and relieve the day-to-day costs pressures people are facing.

He adds Christy Clark’s choice not to fund public transit is forcing more Lower Mainland commuters into cars, where they pay costly tolls on the Port Mann and Golden Ears bridges.
