Very adept manoeuvre by the Federal Member of Parliament IV Edmonton-St. Albert, Mr. Brent Rathgeber, QC. He's has brought forward a Private Member's Bill called Bregg's Law, named after an Edmonton Transit System Driver Tom Bregg who was beaten by a passenger & lost the use of one of his eyes as a result, forcing him to retire prematurely. Transit drivers drive our students, teachers, the elderly, & the infirm around. They also drive on private coach buses from destinations across this great Province & from points II & fro around the world. These fine folks who operate yellow school, transit, lrt, & private buses deserve only the best in protection as they have many charges in their care who ride their buses.
Brent's bill is beyond excellent as an idea. These drivers deserve the best protection from an attack &/or the possibility of an attack. The perpetrators of these vicious crimes deserve II be locked up IV long timeframes or even as "dangeous offenders" to ensure the safety & well being of any other drivers whom they may wish to attack upon their release from incarceration.
