A young man was stabbed in the chest while travelling through northern Ontario on a Winnipeg-bound Greyhound bus Sunday afternoon -- less than two hours after passengers say the attacker was put on board by members of the Ontario Provincial Police.
The victim -- identified by witnesses as an Asian male in his mid-20s -- was rushed to hospital and is expected to survive. Police arrested the suspect near the town of White River, just moments after the driver allowed him to get off at the side of the highway.
"We don't know why he was with the police or why he was able to get on the bus with a knife and get that by police," Winnipeg author Anita Daher told the Free Press Sunday night. She was one of an estimated dozen passengers who witnessed the incident, which immediately brought back memories of the July attack near Portage la Prairie in which Winnipegger Tim McLean was stabbed and beheaded on-board a Greyhound.
"There's got to be some security measures put in place. We don't feel safe," Daher said.
She boarded the bus in Sault Ste. Marie Sunday afternoon following a two-day author presentation in that community. She deliberately picked a seat near the front, believing she'd be safer if trouble broke out.

Note to self: Never ever ride a Greyhound again. Ever.
At least not in Canada . . .
This is the 3rd attack on buses in CA in the last few months.
This is like a product tampering case that hurts the reputation of a company, those who work for the company, along with the person actually harmed.
Buses aren’t that much safer in the US. Most prisons give parolled convicts Greyhound tickets if they have no other means of transportation.
They do have cut rate fares.
But how do you fare after the cut?
No matter how you slice it, not well.
