Enough is enough

Posted on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 10:18 AM

Never have I been so ashamed to live in this city, when the needs of so many are put on hold because of the egotistical, selfish greed of the people who control one of our cities vital lifelines. This is no longer a union fighting for "what they've earned", it's a fucking pissing match and the HRM deserves better. The public transit system we have, with all its faults and its sub-par functionality, is the sole option for this municipality's working class, the people who can't afford to own a car because they can barely afford to pay rent, the people who work 7 days a week to afford food for their families and the students who pay the some of the highest tuition rates in the country just to attend our universities and institutions, just to name a very few... Maybe those greedy people have forgotten, but the last time I checked this was still Halifax, Nova Scotia, strike or no strike we find a way to get the job done because we give a shit about our lives and this community, we are better than this. Halifax means more to us then who our mayor is or how this unionized transit system thinks it should operate, it's this community that has the power to keep this city alive... and those people's lives are being fucked with. It's time to stand up and say enough is enough... Put those buses back on the road, let us get to work and school and while you're at it... get the fuck out of our province, the both of you. Clearly neither of you are fit for your postions and more so, neither of you deserve the honour of living among the fine people of the HRM let alone our province. —We Need Public Transit
