Two city councillors in Metro Vancouver want to find ways to avoid any further traffic chaos like the hours-long tie-ups that stranded thousands of commuters during Tuesday night's snowstorm.

Daniel Fontaine of New Westminster and Linda Annis of Surrey say it's time for a ``snow summit'' bringing together Lower Mainland municipalities, the provincial government, transit operators, and road maintenance contractors to find a solution.

Annis says it took her nine-and-a-half hours to reach South Surrey from downtown Vancouver during the storm and Fontaine says the weather was not a surprise, so he wants to know what happened to cause the tie-ups.

He says a regional plan is needed that does better next time, and is a combined effort of the province and local municipalities across the Lower Mainland.
