Trudeau asks transport minister to tackle Greyhound’s western pullout

Greyhound Bus

Greyhound Canada announced last week it is cutting passenger and delivery services in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Northwestern Ontario and rural British Columbia.

The decision triggered outrage and apprehension among rural and First Nations communities that rely heavily on the company’s service.

Indigenous women’s advocates have said that Greyhound’s decision will put more women at risk.

“I have asked our minister of transport to work with the provinces, to work with communities, to work with the company to try and see what paths forward there are.”

Trudeau was responding to questions from reporters in Nova Scotia about whether Ottawa is prepared to offer subsidies to keep the service running or offer an alternative.
