For $365K a year, can TransLink's FOURTH CEO in 12 months restore faith in BC transit system?

We've been covering the grassroots fight against the BC transit tax since the beginning, and cheered Jordan Bateman's successful grassroots campaign to defeat the proposal.

He joined me to talk about his new book about the campaign, called Everyone... But the People (available from Amazon.ca and already a top seller.)

We also talked about the latest changes at TransLink, which just hired its fourth CEO in 365. Who is he and how will he be any different than the others?

Check his contract hopefully hes not getting paid in US$$$. Just like Translink to work out these sweetheart deals that drain the taxpayer.

Once again… Let us remember Einstein’s’ definition of “Insanity” :- making the same mistake over and over again and expecting a different result… Given that his 1915 “gravitational waves” theory has been confirmed today, maybe the nutsy-coocoos at TransLink see the light in their executive hiring practices?…

Lefty’s simply canNOT run businesses of any type. How is this any different from Orng, or the Gas Plants, or Smart Meters, or Ontario’s attempt at their own transit system, or eHealth system. And they just don’t learn!! They just don’t know how to run a business! Period!!
