Masks On Transit Petition

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – A petition, calling on the city to make face masks mandatory on Winnipeg Transit, is growing.

Zach Fleisher, a former official at the Amalgamated Transit Union 1505, launched the online petition. He says he’s not taking the bus right now and he wants drivers and riders to feel safer when on a bus.

Several other Canadian cities require masks on their transit systems.

City councillor Jeff Browaty has been handing out free masks and calling on the province to make masks mandatory.
