Winnipeg Transit driver: Many attacks not reported

TORONTO — Drivers are under attack more often than what the city of Winnipeg's official figures reflect, a former Winnipeg bus driver told CBCnews.ca, because many incidents go unreported. Brian Lennox says he was attacked eight times and shot at eight times during the 32 years he drove a Winnipeg Transit bus.  

City of Winnipeg officials told CBCnews.ca that more than 400 assaults against transit drivers have been reported in the last 12 years, but Lennox says he thinks it's much higher. For the full story, click here.
