Surrey Now: Not everyone can afford to vote 'yes' to TransLink tax

January 20, 2015

The Surrey Now newspaper has written a great editorial about how voting for jacking up the PST is not affordable for many people.

They write "

As Hepner notes, Surrey needs light rail, better bus service and other improvements to fight gridlock. Sure. But people also need food and shelter. And for most of us, our wages have not seen any slightly substantial increase in years.

Robertson and Hepner will not be feeling the pinch so much, however, as they will reportedly be paid an extra $50,000 each for their new positions on the mayors' council.

It's easier to vote "Yes" when you can afford it"
