SOUTHLAND Transportation’s response to the sentencing of
former school bus driver in Medicine Hat, AB
June 28, 2019
SOUTHLAND Transportation was deeply concerned to learn about the sentencing of a former part-time school bus driver who was employed by our company in 2015. SOUTHLAND was not involved in the investigation that resulted in these charges and were unaware of what had transpired until the news story was published on June 26, 2019.
We take this matter very seriously as the safety and security of the passengers we transport is of the utmost importance to us.
SOUTHLAND has robust hiring processes in place, which include both criminal checks and professional background checks. We will be reviewing our current policies and procedures to ensure that they are as effective as possible.
Regional Director, SOUTHLAND Transportation
