A new bus service between Smithers and the First Nations village of Moricetown will only take about 30 minutes, but the ride along the so-called Highway of Tears has been years in the making. The service, that starts Monday, is along a small section of Highway 16, the route that stretches between Prince George and Prince Rupert where 18 women have disappeared or been murdered since the 1970’s. Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad says part of the service plan involves working with First Nations communities to train bus drivers and operate transit services between their villages and major communities along the highway.
