Blair Lekstrom, the new minister of Transportation, has been making comments in the press about the proposed fare increases for the next four years. Our fares have increased over 90% in the last 7 years and are scheduled to increase another 8% per year until 2015. His comments sound encouraging and he is asking for input, so let's give it to him! Send him an email at Minister.Transportationgov.bc.ca and let him know how you feel. Let him know how devastating these increases have been (and will be) to our economy. Tell him how this affects every aspect of your life. We are taxpayers too, and we don't deserve to be discriminated against. We deserve the right to have our transportation infrastructure supported as much as everyone else! Tell your friends to do the same!
