The trailer looks good. It does not seem articulated, so I am curious how does it handle curves.

We're talking Saskatchewan. There aren't any.

I though that PT usage in the Netherlands was higher, considering the high population density and urbanization rate (and also the high environmental awareness, since they use the bycicle a lot).

Buses in Montreal are frequently carrying advertising signs saying "this bus is 50 cars less on the road", but the bus is the same size as the 40 in Ontario (plus... that bus maybe has 12 seats... rest standing...)

Not only. They also benefit from the fact that those people are actually able to commute or travel around.

The real trouble with taking space up would happen in the cities. Yet more, in the cities you can find also the biggest external benefits of having PT.

Guys

Btw. what a tricky day. I woke up as I was blinded by bright sun rays, realized I must have found my sun glasses and did not dress very warmly. Passed the thermometer as I was looking for my shoes and saw the outside temperature was 0°C

Yes it does. And it really could be Clio or Thalia perhaps. But why do they have licence plates exposed behind windscreen? Is it due to documentation?

There were no injuries reported with this accident. 20 years ago such an accident would've resulted in fatalities. Cars have become much safer.
