Hope to see you better soon, Councilor Smith
Okay, initially I was torn on the transit hike - that was before I realized that the $0.05 increase was just the beginning - that it'd eventually be raised by 25 cents. As time has gone on, the transit hike as become increasingly absurd - its effect on hard-working poor Winnipeggers, the stalling Katz's has done on Rapid Transit, and the realization that subsidizing sprawl is a higher priority for the city than fixing public transportation all sunk in. City hall has seriously misplaced priorities, so I salute Harvey Smith and the fellow councilors who've opposed this bad idea.
