To the editor,
Re: Climate declaration just virtue-signalling, Letters, May 16.
This letter is insulting to the Nanaimo city council and the good work Nanaimo and the RDN are doing in the area of transportation. Does the letter writer not know that increasing hours of bus transportation tends to take cars off the road, ease congestion and improve air quality? Not sure what decade the letter writer is living in, but last weekend, for example, I took a bus from Woodgrove Centre to downtown and there was standing room only.
I am a senior who has chosen not to own a car. I regularly and successfully use public transit and I belong to Modo where I can book a car when I need one.
We in Nanaimo, in my opinion, are lucky to have a new mayor and council which includes smart, young, educated members as well as knowledgeable veterans, I am happy that we are doing our part for climate change in helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
