CFB Esquimalt’s Blue Boat service works on many levels

Those who made decision should think more about consequences of decision to cut service

Re: CFB Esquimalt commuters worry about joining Colwood Crawl (News, March 14)

The decision to cut the Blue Boat service is beyond idiotic, especially a service that transports staff to the job site and cuts down on motor vehicle emissions, not to mention reducing vehicle congestion. A reduced schedule makes more sense.

Military leaders are facing budget challenges backed by minimal strategic guidance, including shrinking resources and fiscal management that often fails to meet basic readiness standards.

Our political leaders ought to use the defence budget axe first on senior officers who clearly can’t truly grasp the consequences of their decisions.
