Re: Voters reject transit tax, July 3.
Which part of ‘no’ do politicians not understand?
I must admit, I was very surprised that the ‘no’ side won – and so dominantly, to boot.
I am very happy to witness that more people are starting to pay attention to what our ‘rulers’ are up to.
Yet, TransLink still doesn’t seem to get the message that this referendum was about them and their lack of accountability and know-how.
I like to use the saying, “can’t fix stupid.”
Having given SNC-Lavalin the contract for the Evergreen line was probably the worst act.
The millions of tax dollars they spent in the ‘yes’ campaign was another swift kick into our already thin-lined wallets.
So I have to ask myself, which part of the ‘no’ do the politicians and their backers not understand?
And what are the defeated mayors doing now? Of course, passing the ball back into Christy Clark’s court – a game that is played amongst politicians with our dollars, yet we don’t even get to sit in the bleachers to watch.
Why do so many people still call this democracy? Even though the ‘no’ side won, look what it actually cost us.
I agree that the defeated mayors should be responsible for their manipulating campaign.
Our province has much bigger, more important issues than supporting TransLink, health care, poverty, homelessness, drug-war issue in Surrey, overdevelopment in White Rock, etc. The list is endless.
Dear folks, please stay awake. We do have the ‘people power’ if we want to.
There is more to come from our so-called representatives.
