Of course the scum bag Mayor of Vancouver wants to get rid of any influence the people of the county have on the CTran board: after all, when has that slimeball ever given a rat;'s ass what the people actually want?
But in a lie reminiscent of his days running for mayor when that crudbag ran a campaign of lies concerning tolls on the CRC rip off, Tim "The Liar" leavitt lived up to his name once again:
Leavitt said Vancouver has collaborated with its partners at C-Tran in the past, and will continue to do so. Suggestions of a power grab are "preposterous," he said.
"The history doesn't show that, nor does the future bode that," Leavitt said. "We want to do what's best for the entire county."It takes a genuine kind of lying scum to say that with a straight face.
You want to do what's best for you, given who you work for... and that means what's best for TriMet, since that's who you answer to.
The reality is this, Mr. Mayor: if you and the scum who supported you on this naked power grab, which would not even be close to happening if Pridemore, God Forbid, had been elected, then each and every one of you would be taking a header off the high end of the I-205 Bridge.
THAT is what's "best for the entire county."
Now, of course, the county should immediately end their relationship and membership on the CTran board.
And do it as soon as possible: tomorrow would be nice.
Otherwise, their continued involvement just becomes approval of everything the scum on the CTran board do.
