Wednesday will be the final time an STC bus rolls into the depot in Regina, or anywhere for that matter.
The provincially run bus company is shutting it’s doors after more than 70 years of service in Saskatchewan, though not without a valid reason.
The Saskatchewan government decided to wind down STC after they found it was in fact losing more money than it was making.
After weeks of outrage, last week, Justice L.M. Schwann claimed there is no “legal infirmity” with the order to wind down and dissolve the company.
Another rally is planned for Wednesday evening at the depot in Regina.
Many people continue to voice their displeasure of the wind down of STC, including 69-year-old Percy Legeboff who spoke with reporters on Wednesday in front of the STC depot in Regina.
“I’m from the Yorkton area from Pelly and I have used the bus all my life, it’s a real shame what they are doing to us,” Legeboff said.
Interim Leader of the Provincial NDP Trent Wotherspoon also spoke out against the provinces plan on Wednesday, calling on Premier Brad Wall to cancel his governments shut down of STC.
STC had been in operation since 1946.
