Tactic - Nothing More

Robertson drops fare fight, pays up

Gregor Robertson and his team have acknowledged that continuing the story of Gregor Skips His Fare and Kvetches in Court is a real lose-lose proposition.

Will people notice that this was bad decision making and bad karma from start to finish?

Probably not.

The team have correctly understood that they have nine days to go and they do not want FAREGATE staring at them on November 15th.

They are right, for all that they have been wrong.

Why would anyone take transit? The draconian measures by TransLink over a fare mistake, makes me want to never, ever take transit again.

I'll just take the car instead and local police are more sympathetic with minor violations.

This is nonsense.

There are much bigger issues - like the current City Council holding a behind closed doors meeting where they give Millenium Construction $100 MILLION dollars to complete the Olympic Village.

And this, after this same council allowed an investment firm that was heavily involved in the sub-prime mortgage disaster in the states.

With our money.
With no say in the matter.

This is Peter Ladner's idea of leadership?
Now that is poor judgement.

Gregor Robertson for mayor.

To paraphrase Churchill: Ladner is the worst of all possible choices until one considers the alternatives.
