Would you like to see a high speed train from Vancouver to the Fraser Valley?

With Lower Mainland housing prices soaring past our incomes in the last couple of decades we are moving further and further away. Some young people looking to buy a home are now looking at places like Abbotsford, Chilliwack and even as far as Hope, which is 155 km away from Vancouver. Cities that used to draw these young first-time buyers like Surrey and Langley are getting too expensive.

With affordable housing moving so far out, Vancouver commuters really have to do their math with our increasing gas prices. How about a high speed train? Would you consider living in the Fraser Valley and commuting to Vancouver for work if you had the option to ride a high speed train?

In this photo released by China's Xinhua news agency, a bullet train passes over Yongdinghe Bridge in Beijing Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012. With affordable homes now as far out of Vancouver as Chilliwack and Hope is it time to start talking about a high speed train connecting Vancouver and the Fraser Valley?
