Do you remember the Starlight Tours? Now you don’t have to be drunk to experience this police mistreatment, only be a First Nations person who is unwell.
A shameful story of racism out of Manitoba today. This is one of the companies the SaskParty is looking toward to offer replacement bus service due to the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) closure and sell-off happening in 2 days!
Spence said he pleaded with the police for help, asking if there was a way to get a ride or find some place to get away from the cold.
“They said there was nothing around here. I said, ‘What should I do?’ They said, ‘Your best bet is to start walking,’” Spence recalls.
Greyhound said in its defence:
“After further investigation, it appears the customer may not have been intoxicated and may have been experiencing a non-alcohol related issue.”
What the hell do they mean by “a non-alcohol related issue.”?
“Spence says at one point he was being followed by a pack of dogs.
“I just kept calm, and kept walking and eventually the dogs left me alone,” he said.”
““They should compensate me. I was scared for my life,” he said.”
This man was thrown off the bus, literally to wild dogs. Greyhound should be giving this man free bus rides for life, for this horrible mistreatment.
