That’s interesting that her kids each go to school at different Colwood schools. Maybe she can teach them how to take the bus?

"leave now" (7:33 AM) from a random point on Otter Road to the first Colwood school I saw (Wishart Elementary) has the kids arrive at 10:04. The 63 they would be on (starts at 8:13) is the first of the day. Even if they went to a school in Sooke they wouldn't make it. She also wouldn't make it so unless they live along the 61/65 or 64 routes Transit isn't an option regardless (living on the 64 would be possible to get to Wishart elementary leaving on the 6:47 trip.)

It's awful.

 

People living outside of the immediate core of the region have no idea how bad transit services are.

Maybe they could have used some of the $400MM they are paying out to drivers to improve transit instead.

Victoria Police say officers’ presence at the convoy protests resulted in $385,947.25 of overtime costs for the nine weeks of protest at the B.C. Legislature.

Between January and April 2022, a group attended the legislature to protest the COVID-19 restrictions.

The group of old-growth protesters who have previously been blocking highways changed tactics Wednesday by dumping manure in front of Premier John Horgan’s MLA constituency office.

Save Old Growth says members chose to dump manure at Horgan’s Langford office because of the NDP government’s inaction to protect old-growth forests.

“The NDP Horgan government doesn’t seem to give a s**t about following through on their promises to protect old growth, so we gave him some,” Sophia Papp, a spokesperson for the group, said in a statement.

I guess the world isn’t really ending, then.
