On the fourth and final episode of The Trip Diary, Steve Tornes speaks with Bowinn Ma and Uytae Lee about their public engagement work involving transit systems, as well as the possible futures of transportation in the Lower Mainland.
Bowinn and Steve have a conversation about INSTPP and B-Line/rapid bus initiative in West Vancouver, while Uytae described how his series, “Uytae Lee's Stories About Here,” brings awareness to urban planning concepts to a larger audience.
Bowinn Ma is British Columbia’s Minister of State for Infrastructure and the MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale.
She is a licensed Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) with a degree in civil engineering (BASc), a masters from the UBC Sauder School of Business (MM), and a certified Project Management Professional (PMP). Bowinn previously served as Parliamentary Secretary for TransLink and as the Chair for the Select Standing Committee on Crown Corporations, leading an all-party committee to develop recommendations for Transportation Network Services in British Columbia. She has also served as a member of BC’s Treasury Board since 2017. Prior to being first elected, Bowinn managed terminal expansion and redevelopment projects for the Vancouver Airport Authority.
Uytae Lee produces videos that educate people on the urban planning challenges facing cities today.
He is the creator of the CBC series “Stories About Here”, where he explores the often overlooked issues in our own backyards - whether it’s the shortage of public bathrooms, sewage leaking into the water, or the bureaucratic roots of the housing crisis. In addition to producing videos for CBC, he hosts a YouTube channel called “About Here”.
