News Bisson Asks for Northern Bus Funding SHARE ON: Valerie Isaac, staff Tuesday, Apr. 21st, 2015 MPP Gilles Bisson recently asked the Minister of Northern Development and Mines to help to restore bus service between Hearst and Thunder Bay. A private company suspended the services on the route because of low ridership. Bisson is pressuring the minister by comparing services in the north versus services in the south. He says if the province is able to subsidize Go Transit why can’t they restore this much-needed service in the north. The minister committed to following up with the Ontario Northland Commission.
