Lynn's Comments: I was given a placard, which read, "Boycott BC Hydro"” This was the company that governed the Vancouver transit lines at the time. I had read nothing about the reasons behind the bus fare hike and had no idea what "boycott" meant.
Lynn's Comments: We all marched down the main streets of Vancouver, lead by our righteous leader—screaming for justice.
Lynn's Comments: Here's irony for you: we all lived in North Vancouver and had to take the bus into the city in order to protest the bus fare hike.
Lynn's Comments: Our enraged and noisy parade made it to the BC Hydro building where we demanded to see the Minister of Transportation. We were told that he was not in the building and that we should make our concerns known in writing. We were too excited and energized to be reasoned with. This was exciting!
