No reason not to trust transit system after deadly crash, Ottawa Centre MPP says

By Jacquie Miller, Ottawa Citizen, January 12, 2019

Ottawa Centre MPP Joel Harden, whose riding includes Westboro station, said he was saddened and shocked by the collision. “It’s a pretty sad day.”

However, people should not be afraid of riding the city’s buses, he said in an interview Saturday.

Harden often takes double-decker buses with his two young children. The most popular seats are usually in the front, he said.

Harden said he may take a ride with the kids Saturday just to make the point that he still trusts the bus system.

“I’m certainly still happy to ride the double decker bus. I’m very, very sad that this happened, and I want to know what happened just like everybody else … This is certainly the worst possible thing that could have happened, and it happened.”
