KHJ Radio: Transportation company under investigation by the province

Education Minister Jody Carr says a temporary order involving Prestige Bus Service of Sackville will remain in place while provincial officials investigate the matter. Carr says the two buses were carrying about 60 students from a middle school in the Moncton area when they were stopped by Nova Scotia highway safety inspectors in the past week. He says both buses failed to meet tire-tread standards. Carr says officials are gathering facts about the situation and expects to have more to say in the coming week. He adds he understands the company has been used by one school district in the province for about 10 years with no prior major issues.
