Transport Canada to take new look at rules, research on school bus seatbelts

Transport Minister Marc Garneau is ordering his department to take a fresh look at the data on school bus safety and seatbelts. Garneau says if seatbelts are properly used and installed on buses they can provide an additional layer of safety for riders, but notes that current seat designs already provide good safety in the event of an accident. The government was put on the defensive after an investigation from the CBC show "The Fifth Estate" suggested federal regulations about school bus safety restraints were based on out-of-date and incomplete information.
