Let’s start a new category for the Jordan Bateman and the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, beginning with this gem from Geof:
In December 2014, Bateman wrote on his blog that PST exemptions for things like food should be eliminated. “Charge it on everything, but knock the overall rates down,” he wrote.
In February 2012, he criticized Translink for resisting fare gates. Those same gates are now under heavy fire from proponents of a No vote. Here’s Bateman then: “Thank goodness then-transportation minister Kevin Falcon didn’t listen to the TransLink ‘experts’ and went through with fare gates.”
