Lemieux calls Greyhound's bluff.. and wins the first round

Yesterday our intrepid Transport Minister challenged Greyhound to reveal exactly which routes were unprofitable before he'd commit to a bailout. Well, today they announced that they're not going to cease operations in Manitoba just yet:

There will be no disruption of Greyhound bus service as expected Oct. 2 nor any layoffs, CBC News has confirmed.

Manitoba Transport Minister Ron Lemieux said the provincial government and the bus company have agreed to keep negotiating.

Another meeting between the two sides is scheduled for next month, Lemieux said.
