Letter: BC Transit waste

Why are no newspapers holding Mr. Achenada, the CEO of BC Transit responsible for his part in Transit’s debt?

Why are no newspapers holding Mr. Achenada, the CEO of BC Transit responsible for his part in Transit’s debt, now resulting in dropping of service, with his waste of public money by mandating a minor change to BC Transit’s logo, resulting in re-painting the whole fleet of busses, new uniforms issued (about $500 each), old uniforms no longer allowed, all stationary changed … the list must go on, and probably add up to the million dollar shortfall. Do you think a single customer gives a damn who will now suffer reduced service? How curious this minor graphic change resembles the change in BC Ferries, the organization from which he came, and some astute persons see his intentions of moving to as next CEO! A massive waste of money that is now resulting in lost service. His actions deserve scrutiny.
