Canada Line Ka-Put For Evening Rush Again! – CEO Kevin Desmond Must Resign!
Twice in three days, the Canada Line has called it quits during Monday’s evenings rush hour. Snow, again is the culprit, but really, that excuse is wearing thin.
By world standards, it isn’t a lot of snow that has fallen (1 cm per hour) and with trains every three to five minutes crossing the bridge over the Fraser River, there should be no large accumulation of snow that would stop the metro.
Why is this $2.2 billion mini-metro not able to cross the bridge over the Fraser River when it snows?
In other jurisdictions, questions would have been asked in Parliament or legislature and demands made on operating authority to answer why this disruption is taking place.
But this is is a BC Liberal built mini-metro and the mainstream media remain mute, no questions are asked and the transit customer is once again treated like crap!
Translink’s total incompetence is breathtaking and again, TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond must resign or be fired
After a hold on trains at all Canada Line stations, some service is now resuming, but only between particular stations.
Service from Oakridge to Templeton, and Oakridge to Aberdeen is not running at this time.
TransLink says they’re in the process of assembling a bus shuttle service.
Expo and Millennium lines are unaffected, and are running normally.
Additional security and Transit Police are at the stations to ensure passenger safety and crowd control.
