Fakeologists, start digging.
At least five people are dead after a Via Rail train and an Ottawa city collided in the city’s southwest end Wednesday morning, Ottawa Fire says. Witnesses say the bus appeared to run through warning symbols at a train crossing.
The front end of the double-decker OC Transpo bus is severely damaged, images from the scene near Woodroffe Avenue and Fallowfield Road show. Witnesses say the front part of the bus was ripped off by the impact, which occurred in the middle of the morning commute, at about 8:50 a.m. (13)
If this is a staged event, then perhaps we are already seeing a campaign for more “grade separation” bridge projects.
Some more from the Citizen: “In 2002, then-mayor Bob Chiarelli described the intersection of tracks and road as ‘a very, very severe public safety issue.’”
There are many elements that make this looked staged. The placement of the bus and train don’t look like a hit. How did the crossing gate go unscathed? Where’s the blood?
The twitter “proof” does not seem authentic either. Too many tweets with the typical simBuzzwords.
This is psyOp week in the nation’s capitals it seems. Both Ottawa and Washington. We have our VIA crashes, they have their shootings.
Does anyone know if there is a website outlining emergency drills in Canada or Ontario? Janky J has the US drill screenscap:
