Nova Scotia terminates the bus contracts held with Stock

The government of Nova Scotia informed Stock Transportation that the services aren’t needed anymore. Stock Transportation was responsible for carrying the school children from and to the school in the region of Halifax. According to the previous deal, Stock Transportation would continue providing the transportation service in the Halifax region from 2020.

Zach Churchill, the Education Minister of Nova Scotia, came up with this revelation. According to the Churchill, the new move would end a decade contract between former Halifax Regional School Board and Stock. Churchill also said that he saw this change coming into being for a long time now.

The Education Minister said that after several issues with customer service in the past winter and fall, the staff with the education department commenced a meeting. The Education Department of Halifax Regional Centre had discussions with the Minister. Moreover, the conference also oversaw the weekly accountability meetings of Stock Transportation along with the management. The conclusion of the meeting was in spite of the continual attempts of preventing resolve issues, the issues persisted.

Moreover, these issues even had impacts on the students. Churchill said that these happenings are entirely unacceptable; most of the families depend on the school bus service. And hence, the school bus needs to provide reliable and safe transportation of the students to & from school.

The regional executive director of educators told the reporters that the drivers of Stock always got the students and at the right time and left them on the right time as well. Moreover, the province provided $1.9 million to the company to get more buses.

The disagreement was based on the fact that the company and Halifax had a different meaning “on time.” According to LeRoux, the language of the contract was not precisely written. Stock’s Atlantic Canada director, Patrick Meagher was extremely disappointed with the Nova Scotia government’s sudden decision. Meagher also shared a letter to the parents.
