^But really, you can say that of any political party. I wouldn't put it past any party currently to support/fight transit funding if it helps them politically.
And count me as skeptical of the BC conservatives supporting strong transit initiatives, unless they grow a significant urban constituency, and/or take over the centre-right coalition mantle from the libs.
