Another LIE. The added tax is meant to pay for new services; new buses and mass transit.We had the money, the city govt just blew it on BS.
You hate Mayor Sunshine because he is a doer and a celebrity.

Got to wonder if the gutless critics are able to do half as well?
Confusing? Means that it's above your pay grade. What you need to do is to respond rational. Don't mindlessly hit back at Translink. Don't listen to liars like whippy. Demand an open review and transparency. What's the real story behind the COMPASS cluster-fuck? Is there a Translink Ombudsman? Are there outside directors who are also professional managers? And so on and so on.
