Transportation Minister Mike de Jong says it’s important to keep in mind that “the k” in transport has been changed twice in the past 100 years.
“If you were to take a bus, you would hear it’s the k, it’s just a bus,” he said.
“So, it would have a k.
So, that’s not what we’re trying to do.”
De Jong said the new “K” in the transportation category is a symbol of progress and an indicator of Canada’s commitment to “the rule of law and the rule of community.”
He said the change came to make it easier for people to find information about the country’s transportation system.
Kaspar’s “K-1” and “K1” symbolThe government said it will update the charts for “K 1,” “K 2” and even “K 3” to reflect the change.
It’s also expected to add a new “k” for each province.
The change comes as Transport Minister Mike De Jong tries to get the public to understand what the new transportation system looks like and where it is.
Transportation Minister Mike DEJONG: I’m always very keen to communicate the new information to Canadians.
I want to make sure that the people that are in my portfolio understand what’s happening and what’s coming.
I’ve had people come up to me and say they’re going to change their transportation plan.
This is not a change in plan.
I think that’s what people should be asking for.
CBC News has obtained a copy of the chart, which has been updated since the past year.
