Security Officers On Transit

WINNIPEG - The city and province are talking about putting security officers on Winnipeg Transit buses.

Mayor Scott Gillingham raised the idea with Manitoba Justice Minister Kelvin Goertzen who says he's open to the idea.

The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1505 says assaults on drivers and passengers are at a crisis level.

The ATU reported 92 assaults on bus drivers last year and 107 so far this year.
