1/ Rising gas prices: The perfect opportunity for @MetrobusTransit to have @Joanne_NL @SeamusORegan coordinate with @TownofCBS @townofparadise @CityofStJohns @Mount_Pearl to get #parknride and #publictransit across the Metro region. #nltraffic #nlpoli #design709 ImageImage
2/ In all reality, a dependable public transit system could alleviate traffic in @TownofCBS, reduce car dependency, actually help with GHG reduction, and save constituents money. @DarrinBent @ShelleyMoores79 @AndreaGosse @mjhardynl @JoshBarrettCBS thoughts? Image
/3 The fact that we have no wide urban transit system is abhorrent. We dedicate nearly all transportation to personal vehicles, leaving a large chunk of the population venerable to small fluctuations in #gasprices. Also with no alternative option, it's own a car or poverty.

Taking the #Cowichan Valley Commuter to #Victoria & back is going to cost you $20 a day.

It only runs in the early morning & evening. It runs 1.5 hours before school starts - no good for parents.

25k cars drive the Malahat per day. This is a policy failure. 1/ #bcpoli #Transit
For the vast majority of people, a car is the only option to get between #Cowichan and #Victoria. This is one example of what is clear for many communities: transit is neither affordable nor accessible for many British Columbians. 2/ #bcpoli #PublicTransit
Premier @jjhorgan told BCers to use BC’s “sophisticated public transit systems, if (gas) prices become too unaffordable in the short-term.”

I asked Minister of Transportation @Rob_Fleming if he considers the cost of the #Cowichan Valley Commuter bus to be affordable? 3/ #bcpoli

@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine since i was not asked for my answers; here they are:
@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine #1-"the cop one"
unlike most mayoral candidates contending in this race; i believe in the abolition of our policing institutions. we can build a safety department which doesn't wield any lethal power(power no state should hold btw) #AbolishThePolice
@ThatSeanKeenan @AtlantaMagazine #2-"the crime one"
most crime is not a something we should fight from the top down but eliminate from the bottom up via assuring a society where needs are provided for; acts of desperation will be drastically reduced..

THREAD: Today FCM released Building Back Better Together, our recommendations to build a better Canada—now and post-COVID—by combining the unique strengths of our municipal and federal orders of governments. #cdnmuni #cdnpoli
Our plan builds on our federal-partnership to create jobs, promote equality and tackle #ClimateChange. It empowers municipalities to lead recovery on the ground. #cdnmuni #cdnpoli
#COVID19 is exposing longstanding inequalities. We’ve seen disproportionate impacts on Indigenous, Black + racialized Canadians. And the pandemic has been very hard on people experiencing homelessness + mental illness. #cdnmuni #cdnpoli

#ICYMI: I was proud to speak in support of the #FairShareAmendment at last week’s Constitutional Convention, a joint session of the @MA_Senate & House. It received enormous support, with 75% of legislators voting to advance the proposal. #mapoli

The revenues that would be raised by the #FairShareAmendment are needed to increase funding for our #PublicSchools, make #PublicHigherEducation more affordable for students and families, and fix our state’s crumbling roads, bridges and #PublicTransit. #mapoli
The #FairShareAmendment, which asks our wealthiest households earning more than $1 million annually to pay slightly higher taxes, is the fairest way to make the investments that our #Commonwealth badly needs. #mapoli

I sometimes feel @georgialibs don't get enough high quality, academic press #history & #sociology books. Using the GA Pines automated system, people who are members of participating libraries can get a number of very good books which have recently come to my attention.
"The oldest living things in the world" by Rachel Sussman…. This photo essay book is a beautiful, mind-expanding paean to our biosphere. (I realize this is a #science #ecology book)
"Talking to my daughter about the economy, or, how capitalism works-- and how it fails" by Yanis Varoufakis @yanisvaroufakis…

Crumbling concrete, leaking roofs, and busted elevators: the state of the T… via @BostonGlobe
The dilapidated state of our #PublicTransit #infrastructure is unacceptable. We shouldn't accept the idea that the #MBTA management has to choose between improving service and upgrading facilities. We have to do both: good public transit is vital for our communities.

This is why I have announced plans to revive the #FairShareAmendment. It is the most progressive way to significantly increase investment in the MBTA & other infrastructure. We must continue to explore other funding sources to meet the immediate needs of our transportation system
