Tax dollars well spent?

The Editor,

Today, while returning home from shopping, there was a TransLink bus in front of us with a large poster on the back advertising Coquitlam’s new garbage collection.

Seems this is not really needed as most exposure would be for drivers following the bus, while most residents have received brochures and ads in various papers, not to mention flyers with delivery of new containers.

Is this expense to Coquitlam another way to add to our property taxes while avoiding clearly the appearance of another “opportunity revenue source” supporting TransLink? Don’t think this is a ‘freebie’ from TransLink.

Wise spending of our tax dollars!
