not going away

Calling out the bus stops remains a hot topic in Winnipeg. So hot, that the volume of complaints from both bus riders and bus drivers has prompted action by the local transit union. Complaints to bus drivers, regarding the practice of calling out the stops, have ranged from passing comments, to threats of violence against the bus driver. What kind of city is this?!

As for an automated system, one is set to be in place in a couple of years.

You can ask just about any Winnipegger, and they would tell you that we are "Friendly Manitoba"...I mean, it says so on our license plates! But I have been convinced since I got here, that the license plates are just a ploy to excite tourists. The plates should read more like a bumper sticker: Manitoba: Home to Neophobic Bargain Hunters Who Don't Want to be Disturbed.

I could go on...but I have never intended for this blog to be my soapbox for anything but MS and my experiences with the disease. So seeing as MS has not yet affected my ability to see, nor my ability to stand up and see where I'm going (or where I am) on a city bus...

Cleo, I don't think that we're in Canada anymore!


Neophobia is the fear of new things or experiences. It is also called cainotophobia. In psychology, neophobia is defined as the persistent and abnormal fear of anything new. In its milder form, it can manifest as the unwillingness to try new things or break from routine.
