MONTREAL, Que. – Transport Minister Guy Chevrette said Feb. 11 that the Transport Ministry would help out by raising the rates it pays drivers working for the ministry, retroactive to Jan. 1 of this year, to reflect the rise in fuel prices.

The Ministry of Education will also be allocating more funds to run school buses at the school boards and at some private institutions.

“This adjustment will allow the school boards to partially compensate the bus companies which are, for the most part, tied to three to five-year contracts and who otherwise have no other choice than to absorb the fuel price hikes,” said Education Minister Francois Legault. n
