No Greyhound, and so far no problem for getting inmates back home after their release.
Dean Purdy with the B-C Government Employees Union met on Tuesday with the BC Corrections branch.
He says the province is using other private bus companies to transport released inmates, with Greyhound now gone in B-C.
“I would suspect that Kamloops, Prince George, and Oliver – those facilities we will see probably more of an impact because of the distances they have to travel and get inmates back to their place of origin,” Purdy said.
The union has voiced concern that corrections officers may have to do extra driving to make up for Greyhound departing.
“It’s too early to really see any impacts, and we haven’t heard anything on our end as far as problems with that at this point,” added Purdy.
Greyhound pulled out it’s Western Canada routes at the end of October.
