Sisters stranded at remote B.C. gas station in the middle of the night after bus driver ejects pair for expired tickets
'I never, ever want any parent to have to go through this,' mother says
A B.C. mother says a Greyhound bus driver forced her two young daughters off an Alberta-bound bus in the middle of the night last weekend, abandoning the girls at a remote truck stop not far from the Highway of Tears.
The sisters, aged 12 and 16, waited alone for almost five hours while a family friend drove through the night to rescue them.
Greyhound has launched an investigation, but a spokesman said it appears the girls’ tickets had expired.
“I never, ever want any parent to have to go through this. I don’t want any child to have to feel how my children felt,” their mother, Vanessa Aubichon, told CBC News as she wept. “I’m furious. I’m sad. I’m upset.”
