Don’t let Translink into our communities

Fraser area wouldn't gain from having Translink in communities

I hope the people and leaders of Hope, Agassiz, and Harrison will think twice before allowing Translink into their communities. The cost is just to great for what will eventually become sustandard service.

First your vehicle gas will go up 7 – 17 cents / litre, and there will be a transit fee added to your home heating bill. They have 25 CEOs which make $200,000 or more per year and a police force which give out bogus tickets while 80 per cent of their officers make $100,000 or more per year. There is also plans to add a transit fee to house taxes, a $50 – $100 transit fee to vehicle insurance, and tolls to all the bridges in the translink area.

These extra taxes and fees are above and besides rising prices to ride the buses.  And when the people say enough, Translink starts cutting services not their wages and bonuses.

Translink is like a spoiled teen, who (with no planning) spend all their allowance and just keep asking for more. If you think I am fear mongering just ask anyone on the Lower Mainland what they think of Translink. Public transit is a good idea, just let’s stay away from Translink.
