Shattered lives, shattered faith

By Alistair Steele, CBC News Ottawa, January 19, 2019

It's been a week since 3 people died and many more were injured in a bus crash on Ottawa's Transitway

On Thursday night, a clutch of strangers gathered on the platform at Westboro station, brought together in the numbing cold to leave flickering candles and handwritten cards, and to see for themselves the place where it happened. "These ones had a lot of questions," said Rebecca Renfroe, her two young daughters beside her, bundled against the chill. (...)For many who weren't on the bus, the crash has again shattered faith in Ottawa's public transit system, a service whose only responsibility is to get us to work in the morning and return us safely to our families at the end of the day.
