I will agree with your statement that for B.C. Transit to unveil this new model of community bus was ill-timed (Our View, Nov. 28).
As for the comment, “provocative at worst,” I believe that was the whole idea for doing it at that time.
If we can start a full blown strike between transit and the unions, then we have something that will deflect attention away from the government by creating anger against the transit workers.
This will also help transit reduce spending since they do not pay the workers when they are on strike. This would demonstrate a reason behind why transit did this.
Is it good management to provoke your employees and at the same time set an example by announcing that you are going to spend money on something that has not been approved yet?
We have not heard anything from the government,
Who are the shareholders of this corporation? It would appear as though these representatives, through their silence, approve.
This is not a good example of good management. Maybe this is why so many of our Crown corporations are in trouble.
