Very interesting. I note that the previous amount of fare collected was 710,000 euroes, and the cost of collecting and handling fares was 220,000. So the cost of eliminating fares was 490,000 euroes in a city with a population a little over 100,000. Or the equivalent of about $CAN 50 per person.

I see from the article that there was also the equivalent of a little over $CAN 100 per person in extra capital costs for system expansion due to the increased demand. And that's "fiscally irresponsible"?

I would suggest that better examples of fiscal irresponsibility are things like Hamilton's proposed $25 million Clappison's Corners boondoggle. Or the millions we've poured down the airport rathole. Now that's fiscal irresponsibility.
