Vancouver city election descends to new levels of pettiness

5 Nov

Gregor Robertson’s provincial rivals are now wading into Vancouver’s civic election.

British Columbia Transportation Minister Kevin Falcon says a former provincial MLA from the Opposition benches is a transit freeloader and a cheat.

…Robertson, who is running as a Vancouver mayoral candidate in the November 15th municipal election, is facing a hearing next month over a $173 fine after he travelled two zones on a one-zone ticket.

As a Vancouverite I find this pretty embarrassing.  The idea that a transit fine is some kind of closet skeleton is utterly ridiculous.  Can we please talk about the issues here?  We’ve got big problems to solve in this city.
