Abbotsford Today recently sat down with Former Surrey Mayor and BC Premier Bill Vander Zalm to learn more about his involvement with the South Fraser Community Rail campaign, and the history of the Interurban rail corridor.

Listen to Bill tell his story of political involvement, from shovels to HST, and why he believes passenger rail is a winner for the people and Province of British Columbia:
