WINNIPEG – A Winnipeg school bus driver who was caught on video urinating from the steps of his bus has been fired.
A woman called First Student Canada in early January after she saw the driver repeatedly urinating in public.
The woman, who doesn’t want to be named, says the bus company acknowledged that the driver’s behaviour was unacceptable.
She says she repeatedly called the company when the driver did it several more times.
First Student Canada said Tuesday that the company doesn’t condone the behaviour and the driver has been terminated.
The woman says she didn’t want to see the bus driver lose his job, she just wanted him to stop.
“I didn’t want anybody to lose their job here. I didn’t want any drastic measures taken in that sort of way,” she said.
She says the worst part is her children saw it happen.
“Our oldest daughter said, ‘oh, I’ve seen him do it every day this month, mom’. I was horrified to learn that … It’s not something you want your children watching or witnessing.”
