The provincial government recently announced seemingly arbitrary and illegal changes to the disability bus pass program.
Apparently, the government is cancelling the relatively inexpensive, convenient, and simple $45 per year disability bus pass.
The changes appear arbitrary because the disability community was allegedly not contacted.
Moreover, the changes are perhaps illegal because the B.C. government is allegedly violating contract law by cancelling the $45 per year disability bus pass in September when the disability bus pass does not expire until Dec. 31, 2016.
Consequently, the B.C. government owes each disabled person, who holds a $45 per year disability bus pass, a $15.40 refund, which is for the four months left on the disability bus pass that disabled people will be unable to utilize.
To do otherwise is seemingly violating contract law.
Finally, no one is above the rule of law.
