Get the message, TransLink

They guiled enough people to send in their ballots with a clear message that taxing us for more transit is not acceptable.

Re: The win for taxpayers in the transit plebiscite.

It’s good to hear that Surrey, Langley and Maple Ridge had such a strong voice in opposition to paying TransLink more money to be less accountable.

Asking people to pay more for less service, having two CEOs in a company doing the same job, and expecting Aldergrove residents to fund more of Vancouver and  Burnaby’s transit system (when parts of Aldergrove have no transit service at all) guiled enough people to send in their ballots with a clear message that taxing us for more transit is not acceptable.

TransLink needs to look at how they operate – or how they don’t operate – efficiently and make changes internally before calling on Lower Mainland residences to add more cash to the trough.

If the peasants stand together, the kingdom will fall.
