The MP for Battle River-Crowfoot is curious to the Government's next move following last weeks Greyhound pull-out.
Kevin Sorenson is wondering what Prime Minister Trudeau's next move will be. The PM instructed Transportation Minister Marc Garneau to find a solution to Western Canada's transportation withdrawal.
"It's one thing for them (The Trudeau Government) to talk to the Transport Minister and get briefed on it and see what the degree of impact this may have on Canadians," commented Sorenson. "Certainly, having the goverment step in right now is premature. We have a private sector that can look to this."
The Prime Minister is asking Garneau to work with Greyhound, provinces and communities to discuss what paths may be available for those who use the bus out of necessity.
"We need to look at ways to keep these communities connected," said Sorenson. "We also have to be aware of protecting tax payer's interests. There's a fine balance and I think it can be found."
Sorenson suggests the private sector might be able to find an easier way to give rural communities the transportation they need. He also knows that the agriculture business in rural communities will take a hit too.
"As a farmer, I can tell you there are occasions where not only is it for passengers but the freight as well," informed Sorenson. "It's disappointing. It shuts down transport from rural communities to some of our larger centers and really; all across Canada."
