KAMLOOPS — The NDP's critic for social development was in Kamloops on Wednesday, joining people with disabilities in the fight against Christy Clark's bus pass clawback. 

Michelle Mungall visited Kamloops residents at the North Shore transit station on Sydney Avenue. Her visit comes after the Liberal government increased disability assistance during this year's budget but also stopped paying for monthly bus passes, which are $52 a month.

Mungall and other NDP supporters garnered signatures from residents, a petition they hope will to force Premier Clark to reverse her decision.
