Ticked Off and Tickled Pink Sept. 7


By Ticked Off - Tickled Pink on September 7, 2017.

Ticked Off

With a person spreading lies/rumours on the newspaper’s Facebook page.

Tickled Pink

To let the public know that the drivers weren’t the ones who came up with the new transit routes.

Ticked Off

With people rolling through stop signs. It is a very bad habit and it will eventually cost you, and it seems to be contagious.

Tickled Pink

The city will end support for shrubs as we cannot even afford to support bus service on evenings and weekends in many parts of the city.

Ticked Off

That city council members and city administration won’t take the transit challenge. Coun. Pearson said that he couldn’t because he couldn’t get home on the bus after 6:30 p.m. and it was too far to walk. Obviously that would apply to a lot of the rest of us too.

Ticked Off

As long as we are putting berms all over this town for every eventuality and possibility, why not one that should have gone up 60 years ago: a noise and stench barrier for the Canadian Pacific Railway corridor.

Ticked Off

The city gives pale lip service to recycled rubber sidewalks that have clearly demonstrated their benefits, but Public Works continues to pour 5- or 6-inch thick concrete sidewalks instead.

Ticked Off

That the travelling coin and silver people arriving in town on Sept. 10 are here to take advantage of people again. They only pay a portion of what should be paid and their ad is misleading.

Ticked Off

Our city council has zero empathy with people dependent on city transit as their primary means of transportation. They attempt to deflect blame by claiming they didn’t design the routes or service hours, but their budget reduction demanded the change.

Ticked Off

That it’s more important for the city to talk about making new parking lots downtown and spending money on event centres but cannot find the funds to maintain our green spaces.

Tickled Pink

To hear Alberta WR/PC parties are in debt and overstaffed. Reminder to wannabe leaders — pointing a finger there are four pointing back at you. Karma is sweet.

Ticked Off

Why should the city transit run empty? We have to understand the city isn’t going to make everyone happy. Why should the taxpayers be responsible?

Tickled Pink

I and many others would be tickled pink if the powers that be at City Hall would make savings to the city coffers in places that are obvious to many: The glut of staff, especially among various levels of management, is no secret.

Ticked Off

The mayor, council and transit management do not understand the meaning of special transit. This service is doing a bad job now and they want to add a shuttle service to it? Special Transit is overworked. Now they want to add more?

    The transit system is a public service provided to the citizens of Medicine Hat just like the Canalta Centre, Esplanade etc. We all pay taxes to support these public services even if we don’t use them. If the majority of the people in this city doesn’t feel they should help pay for the transit system then why should we who do not use some of the other facilities pay for them. I can just hear the screaming if the cost of going to a hockey game skyrocketed if users had to pay the full cost of running the arena. My tax money helps pay for many things I cannot afford to take advantage of but you want to deny me my only way to get around this city. SHAME
