Everyone should vote no in the transit referendum.
These people would not put in the turnstiles, the Compass plan does not work and the system keeps shutting down. They were told there was problems with the system. They went ahead anyway. They don’t listen to anybody.
They’re almost paid twice as much as anyone else in the bigger cities. They want a yes vote? Cut their wages by 30 per cent and get in line with the rest of North America.
We have seven new mayors and they all say they want change. They’re elected now so they don’t have to listen to the people for four years.
My wife and I are retired and any raise in taxes, car fees, insurance or carbon tax is too much. Stop building transit in Vancouver until we have the same system south of the Fraser as they have in Vancouver, Burnaby and Port Moody, where there are buses every five to 10 minutes. Surrey? Good luck.
It has to be fair for everyone. Vancouver does not need any more transit. They have all these new bike lanes that only one per cent of the people use. The mayor can buy them bicycles so the people can get around.
This is just one retired man’s opinion. We do need a good transit system, but not the one we have and not with the people who run it.
