Cristin Talentino on Educating for Peace

March 22, 2011

The Peak has published an op-ed by SFU Dialogue student Cristin Talentino. Talentino’s article discusses Vancouver's familiarity with peace activisim and the lack of recognition of this subject in Vancouver's education system.

“Translink has much to prioritize before resorting to another poorly justified fare hike. Translink is a victim of free-ridership and has trouble covering the costs of operating the system.  But instead of finding ways to collect the  $6.4 million shortfall in evaded fares from the services they are providing, Translink believes that pilfering from existing customers is a sound business plan.”
