TransLink 'out of control'
TransLink is mismanaged and wildly out of control. According to their own financial statement for 2010: revenues from transit fees were $413 million and expenditures $1.2 billion; and total revenue due to massive subsidies was $1.365 billion.
The concept of self-planning municipal community cities, where most people commute, bike, or even walk a relatively short distance to work and shopping, doesn’t fit a corporate big box model for the society that some want. We have too many overpaid social engineers recklessly creating too much transportation infrastructure everywhere. They’re creating a costly and unmanageable all encompassing metropolis rather than economically sustainable self planning municipal community cities.
The schizophrenic combination of over-the-top social economic collectivism, economic interference coming out the butt of every Canadian central planning politburo committee, and a corporate welfare state to make it all happen, is going to cost us more than just our money .
