Calgary Sun - - NEWS - — THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

rEGINa — the min­is­ter for Saskatchewan’s Crown In­vest­ments Corp. says a be­head­ing on a Grey­hound bus in Man­i­toba 10 years ago was the be­gin­ning of a steep de­cline in bus rid­er­ship in his prov­ince.

“It seemed to be the tip­ping point of rid­er­ship to re­ally drop like a rock af­ter that,” Joe Har­grave said.

Vince li, who now goes by the name Will Baker, be­headed and can­ni­bal­ized a fel­low pas­sen­ger, 22-yearold tim Mclean, on a bus that bound for Winnipeg on July 30, 2008.

the StC re­leased its final an­nual report Fri­day, which showed the com­pany car­ried 267,385 rid­ers in 2005.

that fig­ure grew a to­tal of al­most 1,000 rid­ers in the next five years.
