Solutions to solving TransLink’s problems

The transit system is severely broken thanks to the B.C. Liberal government-appointed board of directors.

First of all, before another taxpayer dime goes to TransLink, abolish the current board and give no compensation of any sort to them unless they are willing to go before the cameras and not hide behind any spokesperson and tell the public why taxpayers should fund any kind of their pension/compensation.

Second, do a full audit of the money that was siphoned to the always poor TransLink.

Thirdly, it’s time for the provincial and federal government to give back some of the tax money they gladly took from us every time we filled up but refuse to give back. Especially the feds as they charge a tax on top of a tax.

Pay anyone especially all levels of politicians no more than $12,000 to be on the board; as they are already being paid by taxpayers there is no need for them to double dip.

Then go from there.
