The bus route from Thompson to Winnipeg was canceled due to extreme cold


The extreme coolness of Manitoba dragged one of the new bus lines from the province on Sunday night.

Maple bus lines canceled the scheduled route between Thompson and Winnipeg in the afternoon, as Environment Canada forecasts extreme wind warming that could be felt as cold as -53 C at Thompson.

"I do not feel very comfortable at these temperatures," said Maple Bus Lines owner, Lori Mann, adding that he did not want to see anyone abandoned on the road in cold conditions.

"It is quite desolate, even the service stations and things are in sporadic hours.

"It's hard, but security in the first place, I prefer to be sure because if a bus falls, it's not worth it."

A post on the company's Facebook page says that customers who had purchased a ticket for the Sunday run would get a full refund, and Mann said the bus line was trying to get in touch with those who They reserved seats to let them know about the change.

"I feel bad, but you know that if something happened, it would not be right," Mann said.

Maple Bus Lines takes a route between Thompson and Winnipeg, as Greyhound Canada suspended the service in the fall.

The service on the route will resume on January 1, which will allow time to improve.

Almost all the province of Manitoba was under an extreme environmental domain in the state of the cold of Canada.

Warnings extend from the far north of the province to the US border, with only the south-east point of Manitoba avoiding warning.

Environment Canada says that a cold mass of the Arctic air that is expected to fall on the province during the next days is the fault of cold temperatures.

It is estimated that extreme wind reefs exceed -40 C in most of southern Manitoba and -45 C north of Manitoba.

A warm frontal that is about to bring Manitoba to Wednesday's freezing, says Environment Canada.
