Translated, it means bakatare. Actually, somewhere between ahotare and kusottare. Wakarimashitaga?

It stands for Charles in Charge.


Sorry, guys, I had to tell him.

This was a trial test to see how cattle needed to be moved around in-case of a first nations protest attack or an eminent future false flag for our world class, Olympic city.

"Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, unforeseen delays can happen with SkyTrain or any part of the transit system without notice. Our technicians worked as fast as possible to rectify the issue. Unfortunately, we do not provide compensation for service delays as we did provide alternate service such as a bus bridge along the SkyTrain line. We regret any inconvenience this service delay caused.

Sincerely,

Customer Relations Department
CMBC"

That's a pretty standard rate for independent consultants, probably on the cheaper side. Of course, the people who will likely be upset by that figure are people who work hourly and don't understand that their real cost to their organizations is double what they are actually paid.

Another reason behind all these recent Skytrain reliability issues may be the computers that run the system.

Servers from 1994 and floppy disks for rebooting system?

Skytrain issues again. Happy Monday!
Quote:
VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Some kind of power problem has all westbound SkyTrain service stopping at Stadium station.

A bus bridge is getting people between Stadium and Waterfront stations “but this cannot replace the full service capacity of the trains,” reads a release from TransLink.

Expect delays.

“Passengers going from Stadium to Granville may find walking faster,” reads the release.

There is one eastbound shuttle train every 10 minutes from Waterfront to Stadium. All westbound trains are stopping at Stadium and turning back.

TransLink hopes to have service back to normal by 8 a.m.

The power issue itself is at Waterfront Station.

A bus bridge connecting the most heavily congested area of the system, which often is also the busiest portion of the system based on passenger levels....

There are 3 things that are always certain in life:
