And a few thing our government has done in the past year is approve the funding for a subway extension and tax rebates on transit passes, also proving your post makes no sense.
Looking back, I do think I overreacted (stupid new meds). So I am sorry I said what I said, but your comment, even if it were ment to b funny, was kinda dumb.

Whatever.

I don't really see the point in a huge tax increase for a rather useless bus route.
Better invest that in cleaner car policy - would help the majority of commuters in Vancouver who probably commute by car.

$14 bucks per month (($56/12) x 3 for a $300,000 household) is a huge tax increase???

They were thinking about doing that in Toronto. Not a bad idea, since the stops between midtown and downtown North York are spaced at about 2 km or so, and it feels like you have been staring at black walls forever when you finally get to the next stop.

It's a new twist on old technology.
Motion pictures work on the same concept - a series of frames in a fairly fast sequential movement.

Funny how the subway company allows such an ad that may take away ridership.
