The station being grumbled about is in an outlying suburb (the caller wasn't me!):
M It’s really pissing me off. A few years ago this train station in Deux-Montagnes had an open area inside where you could wait for the train. This made a lot of sense to me. Then, this jackass decided to turn it into a place that sold MUFFINS and coffee. So he did and it didn’t work. So he left and another guy bought it out, and he had security guards, who started locking the washrooms, another bad idea. You needed a security guard with a key to open the washrooms for you, because of the graffiti. But now they can’t afford to pay the security guards. So the washrooms are there—public washrooms—but they can’t be used at any point because they’re locked all the time and they can’t afford a security guard with a key to open it for you. Meanwhile, I really need to take a crap, and possibly jerk off to some PICTURES of people I took on the train, and I believe it’s my free right to do so in public washrooms that are there to be used by people waiting for their trains or bus! Leave the place alone. Open it up for the public again, please. Thank you. [BLEEP!]

I have no idea what a public-transit fee is (I seldom venture out of the inner city), I thought AMT car parks charged no fee (were free):
I just received my carregistration renewal with a $75 public-transit fee.

OK, fine, I understand we want more people to use public transit. But how can the Agence métropolitaine de transport at the same time increase my monthly pass by three per cent?

In whose pockets is the $75 going? And I still have to stand on the train every morning.

Transport en commun: une popularité à double tranchant

L’achalandage dans les transports en commun a battu des records en 2011

Le réseau est saturé et de nouveaux investissements sont nécessaires

L'ajoutement des busses consiste principalement ceux des séries «400» qui relient 'en express' les quartiers avec le centre ville en évitant notre réseau du métro engorgé, surpeuplé ... il faut créer des nouveaux lignes de métro, on attendait trop long déjà!

Gone are the Métrobusses, in with the expresses, and in with an establishment of the 700 series busses (Casino and disneyesque La Ronde), which makes one wonder if the 747's >-seven-dollar fare also applies

Un champ de panneaux solaires et d'éoliennes à Montréal?

OK, this pet project really! bites the cake (I'm lousy when it comes to expressions). In the paper itself, the picture ain't hazy. The article goes on about solar and windpower serving businesses and industry alongside the rail corridor serving as an airport link, nary about commuters, but the actual photo revealed DMU (neither a third rail nor catenary) plus its caption read something to the effect that 'transport infrastructure created Montreal but it's always been injurious', neglecting to blame roadways because what rail infrastructure's been left behind anyway, right ...

That seems to me an informative video, yet oddly lacking in sound. Congratulations on your talent, Monsieur.
