VALTAC (Valley Transportation Advisory Committee) has been actively campaigning for 3 years to bring passenger rail to the Fraser Valley. We have connected with thousands of people at festivals and events in Langley, Aldergrove, Abbotsford and Chilliwack. VALTAC is inviting you out to our event to show your support for this cause. VALTAC believes the time is now to put the Fraser Valley’s transportation issues up front and center for the upcoming municipal elections! On August 9th VALTAC, South Fraser ON TRAX, Rail for the Valley, Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society all are coming together to help launch VALTAC’s latest campaign initiative. IT IS BIG, BIG BIG! 

VALTAC continues to seek the support of our MP, MLA’s, Mayors and Councilors to GET ON TRACK and show their support to “Bring Community Rail BACK to the Fraser Valley Now!

VALTAC 2nd Annual Picnic in the Park is proud to be hosting a showing of the newly released film “City Reflections” produced by the Vancouver Historical Society. Back in 1907 a movie camera mounted to the front of a B.C. Electric Railway streetcar recorded the sights of the streets of Vancouver. To celebrate the centenary of this earliest known surviving film of Vancouver, a group of film and history enthusiasts have created their own unique look at 100 years of the city’s history, the result is the film called City Reflections: 1907-Vancouver -2007 This 55 minute historical film shows Vancouver as it was then…and is now! The Director of the film Jim McGraw will be present.
