Re: Trading gridlock for a ferry ride, News, July 8, 2011.
While I am delighted that CFB Esquimalt is lessening the carbon load by providing a ferry service for its personnel, I wonder about the fairness?
Please tell me they pay for it, or that it is classed as a taxable benefit. This is a question your reporter apparently failed to ask.
It is fine that one sailor is saving $60 a week but are the poor stiffs caught in the Colwood Crawl footing the bill for this?
