Editor, The News:
Is anyone else as angry over the mayors’ council’s scare tactics using more than $6,000,000 of our tax dollars in advertising, by trying to tell us that there is no plan B?
Yes, it is our tax dollars, despite them saying it is not new money because it was already in transit’s budget.
The question is, what was it earmarked for and if it was a slush fund, why was it in the budget to begin with?
Don’t be scared into voting yes (while “holding your nose,” as Jackie Chow suggested some time ago), there will be a plan B, you can count on that.
In the meantime, TransLink has forfeited its reason for existence with all the bungling that has gone through and its outrageous wage and benefit packages, voted on by its members. They must be rescinded and it appears that the only way to accomplish this is to vote them down, convincingly.
So, if you have not yet voted, do so now with a resounding No vote.
