It’s been a while since we last chatted.
That can be attributed to a number of factors, among them the fact that OC Transpo has yet to respond to my request regarding fares. Like you, I have not forgotten the time the local public transit service asked for and received permission from City Council to implement a second price increase during a single calendar year. The reasoning was that fuel prices had experienced a dramatic increase and bus fares were simply not keeping pace. Well, given that this year has seen fuel prices drop by nearly one third since OC Transpo began work on the 2015 budget, I figured it was reasonable to ask whether the service was considering returning to Council to request a corresponding decrease in fares.
I mean, it’s only fare — er, fair. Right?
No response yet. I will keep you posted, dear reader.
But when it comes to public service, we could all learn a great deal from the selfless efforts of Wig Bubbles‘ resident record reviewer.
Sadly, Snorri left us last month. He was an essential part of the team that brings you this blog, acting not only as contributor but also as consultant. No post made it to your screen without first crossing Snorri’s desk. The desk remains the same. I continue to be seated in front of it, typing away for the two of us. Alas, Snorri is no longer in his favoured place at the same desk: under it.
His contributions will be missed; but, we here at Wig Bubbles intend to soldier on, and to do it for Snorri.
Farewell, pal. Good reviewer!
