Andrew MacLeod’s write-up of yesterday’s throne speech contained a nugget I didn’t see anywhere else.  Te review dodge made it into the throne speech!

It also made clear that the reviews of B.C. Ferries and Translink now underway are aimed at containing costs: “Public funding devoted to public transit and ferry services should not be used to subsidize unreasonably high compensation levels or administrative costs.”

Oh, good.  Reviewing Translink’s “high compensation and administrative costs” is definitely going to solve the problem of how pay for public transit in the Lower Mainland.  Definitely.
