Nothing fair about taking away bus pass

Re: “Cutting bus pass a miserly move,” editorial, Aug. 31. I can hardly believe how mean-spirited the provincial government is by taking away the bus pass from the disabled.

I can hardly believe how mean-spirited the provincial government is by taking away the bus pass from the disabled.

They have no problem sinking hundreds of thousands of dollars in to court cases against citizens and regularly giving themselves raises, but when it comes to helping our disabled to feel some sense of dignity and worth, they have every excuse in the books as to why this is “fair.”

This is not fair and it is not just and it is plain mean.

I encourage everyone to contact the premier and ask her to reconsider this degrading and disempowering move by her government. Stand up for those who are less able to stand up for themselves.
