Shop due south

No guilt in crossing the border for cheaper food, clothing, fuel.

When we first moved here to Cloverdale, everyone teased, “B.C.” means “bring cash.” We all had a good laugh. But the longer we live here, the less patriotic we’ve become.

You see, I am a regular shopper in the U.S. and I don’t feel guilty. It’s become a necessity to find cheaper gas, clothes, and food – and this province has driven me there.

I have three children and my husband has to cross the Port Mann Bridge daily.

I’ve never paid so much tax money to the government and there never seems to be any accountability.

What the heck do they do with all the money? Every year there seems to be an increase in taxes and less and less money in a family’s pocket.

Now poor, poor TransLink wants more money. Why can’t they work with what they have?

Better yet, why can’t they make everyone pay for their ticket during hockey games and going to and from work? Now that’s a brainstorming idea that would create some revenue.
