MP ASHTON CALLS ON LIBERAL GOVERNMENT TO ENSURE FUNDING FOR TRANSPORTATION ALONG HIGHWAY OF TEARS

Rural bus routes may not be profitable, yet they are critical for the safety of people in our rural and remote communities.

Instead of passing the buck, the Liberal government needs to step and help fund a bus route along the highway of tears. Missing and murdered indigenous women and girls is an epidemic in Canada. True reconciliation means putting an end to this tragedy. This includes safe transportation for Canada’s First Nations and rural communities.
