Witnesses to a fatal train crash involving an Ottawa city bus describe a scene of chaos and confusion as it appears the bus failed to stop at the rail crossing and crashed into the side of the train, killing six people and injuring as many as 33 others. The devastating nature of the crash was clear from the 911 call (audio in clip above), informing the operator of multiple 'code blacks' at the scene.Officials are still trying to piece together what happened prior to the crash, which occurred shortly before 9 a.m. near the intersection of Woodroffe Avenue and Fallowfield Road. Transportation Safety Board said it would be "some time" before answers were clear.
What is known is that six people were killed in the crash between a double-decker city bus and a Via Rail train bound for Toronto. Another 33 people were treated in hospital, some of whom remained in surgery late into the day. ...According to eyewitness accounts, passengers on board the double-decker commuter bus began shouting for the driver to stop as they approached the crossing.
Witness Pascal Lolgis told the Canadian Press that it appeared the bus drove through a barrier.
“Boom! It went into the train like that. He didn't stop. He must have lost his brakes. Or he had an . . . attack or whatever,” he said. “He just didn't stop. He just kept going like that. Then he got hit.” Another witness, Mark Cogan, similarly said the bus drove through the guard rail and struck the side of the train.
The man without a plan since forever apparently is more popular than Stephen Harper who has proven that at the very least he can think and answer for himself:
Justin Trudeau easily eclipses his political rivals when it comes personal popularity, according to a new nationwide survey released exclusively to QMI Agency.
And while Stephen Harper is the least popular, Canadians surveyed believe he is more qualified to be prime minister than either Trudeau or NDP leader Thomas Mulcair.
People deserve the government that they vote for. To prepare themselves for a term under Justin Trudeau, his voters should do the following:
- rely only on solar and wind power even though neither are reliable, reduce carbon emissions (believed to cause global warming- if you believe that sort of thing) and are incredibly expensive to maintain and pay for
-learn Russian for when Trudeau accidentally or deliberately hands over the resource-rich Canadian Arctic to the Russians
- don't be so sensitive when an Islamist again blames the Jews or instructs one on how best to beat one's wife. We don't want to use words like "barbaric", do we?
-concede that the failed province of Quebec must run the rest of Canada into the ground
Don't you feel Canada is better off with a poseur pothead in charge? Who needs real leadership with this guy around?
Premier Kathleen Wynne (friend to accused child pornographer Benjamin Levy) has appointed a panel to convince Ontarians that a hike in the HST for the Metrolinx is in their best interests.
Obama? Arrogant? NO! He can't be!
In an interview with Telemundo airing Tuesday, President Barack Obama said the growing majority of Americans doubting his healthcare law are wrong.Noting that people can begin signing up for the Affordable Care Act's healthcare exchanges on Oct. 1, the Telemundo interviewer noted that the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows that most Americans oppose it, believing it will produce damaging results."Fifty-two percent believe the law will raise their health care costs. Is everybody wrong?" he asks."Yes," Obama said, laughing. "They are."
