Update Monday Evening: Norm Farrell explains where our Sparkle Ponies marked 'BC Ferries' are really going, here.
This from Christy Clark's Minister of 'Transportation' Todd Stone, as reported by the CBC:
"...Stone also announced seniors discounts on the routes will be cut.
"As of April 1, 2014, the current 100 per cent passenger fare discount received by B.C. seniors (65 and older) travelling Monday to Thursday will be reduced to 50 per cent on major and minor routes..."
As we noted on the weekend, there is absolutely no need to wait until 2046 for LNG-bred Sparkle Ponies to start falling from the sky to pay for stuff we actually need right now.
Instead, we could just stop giving them away for free (or worse) to the cronies with their hands out.
Of course, this is not something that should be discussed in the Legislature that the the Snooklandians have battened down tight for the duration, right?
And recall, if you will, just how much some Lotuslandian proMedia folks appreciated Mr. Hahn's 'approach', especially when it wasn't all encumbered by crazy stuff/concerns/issues raised by superfluous, stubborn people like, say, the people's representatives that kept said proMedia folks waiting occasionally.
