  1. I live in the ward. I am glad I was told about this place. this is the best coverage I have seen so far. Do you have a paper and when is it printed? Weekly?

  2. The Upper Wellington bus was completely packed today after work. Yet, how many candidates even mention public transit? All I hear is that people on the mountain only want to drive their cars, yet at times, it's standing room only on the bus.

    1. I talk about it frequently. The Mountain does not get its fair share in infrastructure dollars or cash for transit. 700 people a week are left behind on the Upper James route because buses are full. We have similar problems on Fennel and others.

      We can solve this problem by re-opening the Wentworth Transit Barn and shifting buses back downtown for storage. We presently have 226 buses in a building that is only capable of storing 225. That's a huge part of the problem.

  3. Very good discussion happens on these threads. Good luck to everyone who has registered. May the best person win.
