Whoops, she did it again.
Minister Michelle Stilwell — once again — ignores the many thousands of B.C. voters who have protested the announced increase in the cost of an annual bus pass for those on Persons with Disabilities Benefits (PWD) from $45 per year to a whopping $789 per year.
On June 22, Stilwell’s ministry announced that it will eliminate the annual $45 per year administrative fee, thereby decreasing the annual cost for a bus pass to $634 per year.
This shell game must end. The request is clear. Stilwell and Premier Christy Clark aren’t listening to more than 15,000 people.
Stilwell should take a moment away from her Rio Paralympics training and leave the PWD bus pass alone and raise the PWD monthly support and shelter rates.
Voters are watching.
