Bus tragedy hitting Okanagan drivers hard


A deadly attack on a Winnipeg bus driver as well as an assault on an Okanagan bus operator have renewed calls for improved safety measures to protect transit drivers.

In Winnipeg, a 58-year-old bus driver died when he was attacked by a passenger in the early morning hours of Tuesday. Irvine Fraser had just finished the last ride of the night when he went to wake up the remaining passenger who was sleeping at the back of the bus. He was stabbed to death.
