It is now more than a week since the bus-train collision that killed five people on September 18, 2013. Typically for Ottawa, the investigation of what happened has fallen into a dark corner where it lies unseen and it seems largely forgotten by the media. There has been no information about the condition of the bus, no detail about the lifestyle of the bus driver, nothing about his mobile device or whether he carried one, nor about the party he attended the night before the crash, nor how much sleep he had. Nor has there been any word about the so-called black box on the bus and whether it held a shred of useful information. Reporters worthy of the name should be blushing.
