OMCA response to North Bay Nugget article "ONTC turns down Battalion"

from OMCA

Following the publication of the North Bay Nugget article regarding the ONTC, OMCA President Doug Switzer wrote the author of the article to respond to the story. In his email he told the reporter that:

“For a number of years private operators have been raising concerns about ONTC’s charter business which operates in direct competition with them. These concerns were fundamentally about the fact that ONTC uses taxpayer subsidies to unfairly compete with northern Ontario businesses trying to make a go of the charter bus business. ONTC themselves admitted that they took charters as “busy work” to keep equipment and drivers that normally were part of their scheduled service operations occupied during non-peak periods, and as such they were offering rates below cost just for the cash flow - making it impossible for the private companies to compete with them." more
