Brown to discuss transit crisis on Cogeco TV

BFAST Chair Doug Brown will discuss the crisis in Burlington Transit on Cogeco TV’s #theissue Tuesday Oct. 3 at 8:30 pm on YourTV, channel 700.

On Sept. 7, at the Committee of the Whole meeting, City Manager James Ridge gave a stern lecture to council on the near collapse of the transit system. Burlington Transit’s new financial manager documented a myriad of deficiencies: no capital budget for new or replacement buses, full-time drivers working over 70 hours per week and part-time drivers over 60 hours a week in clear violation of provincial labour standards, extremely high driver turnover, most mechanics working alone and unsupervised and more.

Brown will discuss the latest developments with co-hosts Mark Carr and Cory Judson.
