Quit bleeding taxpayers

Re: Proposed TransLink border tax.

Is Eric Doherty off his rocker?

Tell him to take a good look at TransLink before he opens his mouth.

I see empty buses running around Vancouver every night when I work – a complete waste of money – and his solution is more tolls.

I guess it’s okay if you can afford to live in Vancouver and ride around on your bicycle saving the planet.

Maybe cyclists should pay to use the roadways in the city and quit bleeding the taxpayers who don’t live or work in Vancouver.
