Stilwell and Clark are ignoring 15,000 people

Minister Michelle Stilwell ignores the thousands of B.C. voters who have protested the announced increase in the cost of an annual bus pass

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.
