LETTER: Tunnel tolls wrong
As a senior in South Delta I strongly oppose any toll for the George Massey Tunnel (Letter, Tunnel tolls, South Delta Leader, Oct.14, 2011) or any of the existing bridges.
It's easy for young people to take public transit or carpool, but this writer forgot about seniors who may not be able to walk to the bus stop and indeed need to drive.
Many appointments happen to be in Richmond or in the Granville/Broadway corridor, where no bus goes. TransLink, as it is now, is unacceptable for older people.
I don't see why we should have to pay to use the tunnel; it's been paid for a long time ago and with our taxes.
Don't forget, theory (city planning) and praxis are two different things.
