Be afraid of Metro

In regards to your article ‘FVRD divorce draws fire.’

In regards to your article ‘FVRD divorce draws fire.’ As I read this, I feel there is a desire to go on to bigger and better things, as politicians see them. In time, Abbotsford will be trying to join Metro. That will also mean membership in that other top-heavy bureaucracy TransLink, which means to the simple taxpayer more taxes, and for what – a few extra buses?

The bigger it gets, the more you will be lost in the shuffle. As a Translink employee and knowing Metro employees, you better stay where you are. Be afraid, very afraid, as we read about shadow tolls on the Sea to Sky Highway as part of the P3 contract. Metro and TransLink would love the tax dollars from residents of Abbotsford and Mission.
