Noooooooooo: a dramatic reading

In doing some research on GO Transit, I came across this article from the Spec: http://www.thespec.com/news/ontario/article/652000–go-transit-to-hike-fares-starting-feb-18.

Basically the article announces that GO Transit will be raising its fares as of February 18, 2012.

The silver lining? It’ll be an interesting conversation (if it truly is a dialogue) to follow on social media.

If you have ever had to take the Go bus, you would know that it is worth the cost of the train. Here’s hoping (also LRT is also on the table if Hamilton Council can ever make a decision).
