Klazinga, Stewart Yes Of course.

Firstly I believe that dollar for dollar, an investment into a more vulnerable population has a greater return on investment than that same investment into a population which has less of a need. Transit serves many of our most vulnerable populations, so I see it as an obvious investment. We need to eliminate area rating for transit. We need to provide appropriate transit to the entire city. Everyone should pay for it & everyone should have access to it.
Maldonado, Juanita Yes Full funding and complete support from Council is required to move our transit system from a social service to a world-class system complete with commercial and retail partners. This support will result in more investment and further economic development so young people do not have to move away to get a job that pays the mortgage or allows them to pay back their Canada Student Loan.
