Green Policy Asks: To Make Public Transportation Fare Free! | Green Party of Manitoba: "The City of Winnipeg should hold off on plans to spend as much as $10 million on new electronic equipment for collecting bus fares from Winnipeg transit riders, says James Beddome, Leader of the Green Party of Manitoba.
'Any commitments that Winnipeg's Council has made in this matter should be delayed till after the public has had an opportunity to vote for zero fare bus service in Manitoba, by voting Green with their October 4 election ballots,” said Beddome.
“I fully anticipate that the Green Party of Manitoba will raise the issue of fare free bus service in the next general election,” said Beddome
“Free public transportation is as Canadian a concept as user free public education, and user free public health care,” Beddome went on to say."
