Winnipeg Sun - - COMMENT -

It is very dis­ap­point­ing that our city has re­sorted to the ‘blame game’ (Mas­sive wake-up call, Oc­to­ber 11). Since last year, tran­sit rid­er­ship has de­creased about 10% re­sult­ing in con­sid­er­able lost rev­enue. The prov­ince is be­ing blamed for the de­crease in ser­vice qual­ity be­cause the pro­vin­cial tran­sit op­er­at­ing grant was frozen. Mean­while, back at the ranch, $138-mil­lion was spent on phase one of Bus Rapid Tran­sit. It is the easy way out to blame oth­ers.
