We would like to thank Brittany Wong for her letter ('Split cost of flat-fare scheme', June 6), regarding the splitting of costs between taxpayers and transport operators of the flat-fare scheme.11 Jun 2012 - 12:00am

Express line to blame for fare increase
I agree with your correspondents who have objected to the MTR Corporation's proposed fare increase.

I understand the MTR faces higher operating costs and wants to maintain profits, but it should not pass those costs onto passengers.10 Apr 2012 - 12:00am

Gays deserve to have legal protection
I couldn't agree more with your editorial on gay rights in Hong Kong ('Gays miss out on discrimination law', November 10). The government loves to boast that Hong Kong is 'Asia's world city', but there is nothing world-class when it comes to the treatment of its gay citizens.14 Nov 2011 - 12:00am
