‘Cut back on spending’

Groceries are up, municipal taxes are up, Hydro is going up, gasoline is going up.

Editor, The News:

I’ve had it with the rising costs of everything.

Groceries are up, municipal taxes are up, Hydro is going up, gasoline is going up – thanks to not only oil prices, but TransLink taking another tax on our fill-ups.

When is TransLink going to stop emptying seniors’ pockets?

TransLink wants to pay $70 million for a gondola up to SFU. Give me a break.

If you can’t afford it, don’t build it.

Do the math on what TransLink is already getting from municipal taxes.

I’m all for having an outside audit on TransLink’s books.

Our mayor and council don’t seem to have the nerve to stand up to TransLink and say enough is enough.

Our mayor also seems to think a raise in municipal taxes is doable for seniors on fixed incomes.

I say, cut back on what isn’t necessary.
