The distance we are talking about would get you from downtown Vancouver to Ladner or Port Moody.
You are exaggerated quite a bit...
Whalley to Langley Centre is only about 40% longer than Downtown Vancouver to Metrotown, and 10% longer to Richmond Centre. Its about the distance from Downtown to SFU, and 30% shorter than Downtown to Port Moody.
From Downtown to Port Moody is like Whalley to 224 St. (past Murrayville). To Ladner.. you'd almost reach Aldergrove at 260 St. by that distance.
A line from the current Expo terminus to Langley Centre (by the casino) via Fraser Highway would be around 15.8km in length.
