About WCE Expansion Association
The West Coast Express (WCE) Expansion Association is a non-profit non-partisan organization registered under the BC Societies Act.
The WCE Expansion Association was founded by Harvey Su (www.harveysu.com), a Coquitlam resident, in May 2022. We are a group of volunteers advocating for the expansion of the WCE service, which is long overdue.
We are taking initiatives to engage citizens, organizations and TransLink along with all three levels of government to raise public awareness and encourage urgent action to expand the WCE service.
Our goal is to transform the West Coast Express into a bidirectional rapid transit service that people can enjoy every day.
With the expansion of the WCE, we can bridge communities, combat climate change, and push forward the need for a more connected and sustainable future for all.

His mission is deeply rooted in the values of affordability, sustainability, and community. He hopes to enable a better transit system and bridge Coquitlam with more communities.

Erik has lived around half of his 50 years in Port Coquitlam and is a candidate for City Councillor in the upcoming municipal elections. As a professional consultant, he has often needed to travel to remote locations like UBC, downtown Vancouver and Richmond. As a citizen concerned about the wider impacts of traffic congestion and over-dependence on motor vehicles, he understands the need for efficient public transit in a regional economy. The West Coast Express helps bring these opportunities within reach to residents of communities like Port Coquitlam, with otherwise poor transit connections to the rest of Metro Vancouver. He supports the proposed expansion of the WCE service, as a means to reduce congestion and vehicle emissions while we develop long-term strategies to reduce the need for long-distance commuting.
