It seems Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart's administration continues to seek out alternative revenue sources, just like TransLink.
It doesn't make any difference if you happen to be 85 years old and wish to use some of our recreation services; city council still wishes to charge those people 70 per cent of the fee payable by an 84 year old.
These residents have contributed to society in many ways over a long period of time and at age 85, should have the courtesy of free admittance to our recreation facilities.
Yes, free, and I do not believe there would be any objections.
This is a way that we can say "thank you" for their years of contributions to our community by way of fees, taxation, etc.
If they wish to use the facility, then it should be free. Let's make an effort to encourage older folks to keep fit and to stay social and give them the opportunity to enjoy it free of charge.
We don't care what Delta is doing. When will this administration start thinking about people and our community?
It's not only about taxation.
