The Tyee

The Tyee publishes its summary of the responses to the Dave Olsen series. It pretty much repeats what I wrote here two weeks ago.  In general it has not worked well in larger cities that have tried it, and it is not appropriate for Vancouver which is both over loaded and strapped for cash, and unable to get its hands on other revenue sources.
