No cuts to Castlegar service during transit funding freeze

This from Castlegar Mayor Lawrence Chernoff after a meeting with the Ministry Of Transportation in Vancouver this week.

Chernoff is also chair of the West Kootenay Transit Committee.

He has made it clear to senior officials that he does not want to see any backward steps in the recent expansion of local bus services.
