Re: "Transport funds unevenly spent," Dec. 4.
The editorial points out how insignificant we residents on Vancouver Island are when issues such as transportation costs and ferries are raised with the provincial government.
Solutions such as attending a public-consultation meeting to voice our displeasure might make one feel involved, but will have absolutely no impact on this or any future government. As long as there is no single dominating voice on this Island raising issues, the provincial and federal governments will continue to ignore our input and we will continue to gripe, then pay more for essential services such as ferries, taken for granted elsewhere.
Should 13 lower Island municipalities ever combine to make one medium-sized city, then perhaps that voice would be heard by other levels of government.
Until then, gripe to your heart's content, but understand no one is listening.
