I don't have much hope in these Councilors and the Mayor for voting it down. Especially when their excuse is that they were promised to not touch it 'til next term in return for supporting the LRT.

And Fred Eisenberger lost my support tonight. We need people who will stand up for transit fairness whether it was off-limits as part of a deal or not.
Voted down looking into eliminating area rating. Fucking maddening. The elections can't come soon enough.

All the elections are going to do is see the same people get elected. There may be a couple of changes through people moving on to other levels like Skelley but the core will stay the same.

And right after that, the HSR (ATU) and city workers (CUPE) contracts will expire. If this is anything like last time, council will refuse to discuss the contracts before elections, saying it's for the next council. That might mean something if it hadn't been the city that set the contract length, and it will be pretty much the same council on the other side of elections.

It's one thing to follow the Province and the feds with the blame-your-predecessor trick, but when you are your own predecessor...
