$0.05 Transit Rate Hike

I'm rather torn about this rate hike. On the one hand, the price of diesel and inflation has increased more than enough to justify it, on the other hand it makes transit less affordable for the poor of Winnipeg. I'm really torn about whether transit should be a pure social service or whether it should be operated in a quasi-business like fashion.

  In other news, guess who's screwed up our city's shovel-ready infrastructure plans? Begins with "S" and ends in "Katz".

  2. That only works for the person who stole your bike (incidentally, how do you know that they were poor) or anyone they share or give the bike to.
