Petition for mandatory seat belts on school buses

May 29, 2019

Lethbridge MP Rachael Harder has teamed up with a BC school bus driver to launch an e-petition in support of mandatory seat belts on school buses.

Gary Lilico was motivated to get involved following the death of Jennifer Nobal who was killed in a school bus crash in Alberta 11 years ago. In a statement today MP Harder had this to say. "“Currently in Canada, school buses are not required to have seat belts, which means our children are without adequate protection if the bus were to roll or be in a collision. Mr. Lilico and I are calling on the federal government to take preventative action and put our children first by ensuring seat belts are installed in every school bus” said Harder. The link to the petition can be found here, https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-2143 The deadline to sign the petition is June the 8th.
