No free ride

Why provide bus passes to refugees but not low-income seniors and minimum-wage workers?

Victoria Regional Transit Commission rep Kenya Rogers must be under Justin Trudeau’s rose-coloured glasses spell for giving Syrian and other refugees free bus passes. The refugees we saw on the news looked healthy, dressed well and had cellphones in their hands.

There are Canadian minimum-wage workers and low-income seniors trying to make ends meet and paying into the tax system. Where are their free bus passes?
