So as I was writing up yesterday's piece about my interview with Gary Daters, Union President of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1189, I sent an e-mail to Maggie Laidlaw, outspoken advocate for transit in Guelph, and asked for her opinion. This is what she sent me:
"I am not in favour of continuing with the 30 minute summer service, nor the lack of transit on holidays nor the transit fare increases."
Succinct and to the point. It would be nice if other councillors would be as passionate in favour of our transit system.
