Sort of ambiguous messaging this weekend from Karen Farbridge.
The mayor attended the Universities Fighting World Hunger summit at the U of G, where participants were asked to make a pledge to fight hunger.
Farbridge pledged to support the work of the Guelph-Wellington Task Force for Poverty Elimination, which seems a fairly politically-safe promise to make. But she also mentioned that task force members have been pushing for a subsidized Guelph Transit pass for low-income riders.
The mayor told my colleague, Thana Dharmarajah, she wants to make transit accessible and affordable so riders have more money to spend on other things, like food.
Farbridge repeated the pledge on her blog and noted the value of inexpensive transit, but without committing to the subsidized pass idea.
"The less money people on low incomes have to pay to get around the city, the more money will be available to put food on the table," she wrote. "That is the link to hunger."
