Canadian police are investigating yet another stabbing on a Greyhound bus. This weekend a 28-year-old man stabbed a young man (non fatally) while traveling through the Canadian wilderness between Toronto and Winnipeg. The assailant then demanded to be let off the bus, and the driver was undoubtedly happy to oblige. Police picked him up walking along the side of the road. There was no word as to the motive in this crime that is eerily reminiscent of the stabbing and beheading that occurred on a Greyhound bus crossing the Canadian prairie two months ago.
There are, I am given to understand, some world-class passenger trains that cross Canada daily, and, in a pinch, one could always look into hiring a dogsled! Sadly, though, Canada is a very large country, and those without cars or gas money - the poor - are often forced to take buses to navigate those long, cold distances.
May they stay vigilant and wide awake.
