Sad for the loss of life, my condolences go out to the victims.

But how does a big bus end up like this after a crash with a car?

Heck, I ought to switch to the French dailies, coz the English one's crap when it comes to following up on investigations ... the following pair reflects their --errr-- singular approach

http://www.montrealgazette.com/mobil...tml?id=7102891

http://www.montrealgazette.com/touch...tml?id=7135622

It must've been ages ago that that reader of theirs last road a bus, because most drivers buckle up nowadays

Altogether, the web site featuring many cities around the world isn't all that worth visiting:

Their colour/tone aside, their cut robs her of any flambouyancy...not even footwear, which is usual around the city here . . .

I'd been waiting for the English daily to pick up on this one -- 14 Aug 2012 :
La politique de la CAQ sur le métro coûterait cher à la STM

(Lévis) Si un gouvernement de la Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ) remet à plus tard l'expansion du métro de Montréal, la Société de transport de Montréal (STM) se retrouvera avec 63 voitures flambant neuves en trop, dénonce le vice-président du transporteur public, Marvin Rotrand.

AMT hoping to put dual-mode locomotives back into service soon


New dual-mode locomotives were proudly displayed to media last year, but were taken out of service after just a few days when one of them derailed at Central Station.

10 sep 2012 :
Un plan pour contourner les chantiers dans l'Ouest

L'Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) souhaite créer un «plan de mobilité de l'Ouest» afin de mieux répondre aux besoins des résidants de l'Ouest-de-l'Île et de la banlieue ouest en prévision des années de turbulence à venir dans le réseau routier de Montréal.


clickable...

Might it be that the dailies' reporters here are just as muddled as the parties, authorities? E.g., the train line featured in the picture isn't mentioned anywhere in their report, which happens more often than not This place can embarass me to no end!!
