And kudos to Jordan Bateman for his efforts on the No! campaign. He’s been doing a great job.

I live in the lower mainland and though the mayors have been bleating about the congestion I haven’t see a whole lot wrong with the transportation system, except maybe occasionally downtown Vancouver where Mayor Moonbeam has been doing everything he can to discourage automobile traffic (eg. adding bike lanes).

I suspect most city governments would love to get their hands on more taxpayers money, any way they can. This 1/2 percent sales tax increase for the lower mainland, if it passes, will set a terrible precedent. If lower mainland taxpayers are sucker enough to vote themselves a tax increase then we can expect local politicians to push for similar future increases for every other hare-brained “must have” idea they dream up. This encourages a tax and spend mentality and the waste that goes with it. BC already collects 7% sales tax (plus gas taxes, plus carbon tax, plus …) and as far as I’m concerned they can look for ways to take whatever is needed for transit out of all that.

Vote NO to Transit Tax.

These idiots stuck us with Wynne, now they want to stick us with silly Mulcare or the even sillier Trudeau , its a sad day when bully unions determine who will govern the country.
Canadians need to get off their asses and get engaged with politics so these jerks can be counteracted,
Too many Canadians don’t bother voting and then we have the likes of Wynne getting in and putting in her stupid agendas

Only in Lotus Land? When I look across all the provinces there seems to only be one that isn’t completely hosing its citizens, from every blessed angle. Guess which one it is. I’m heading for the flatlands. Vid worked for me.
