Greyhound Canada Is Gone

Greyhound Canada is halting all of their operations today, eight years short of their 100th anniversary.

Tourists and concert-goers will now need to use alternative modes of traffic within Canada but will still be able to use Greyhound USA’s services for the following routes when the border opens:

Toronto to New York – Toronto to Buffalo – Montreal to New York – Montreal to Boston – Vancouver to Seattle

Other carriers are expecting to step up for the popular routes and Via Rail is available to some.

Au Revoir Mickey?

Disney may be closing all of their stores in Canada by the end of the summer in response to the pandemic and a shift in retail according to Retail Insider.

They had recently closed 60 stores, two of which were in Canada. And now they may close 18 of the remaining locations in this country, which are located in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba. But I suspect they may open a Canadian fulfillment centre or two for Canadian orders at their shopdisney.com site.

Perhaps we will eventually be able to order memorabilia from the Disney+ app itself in the future. But hopefully they might consider re-opening larger locations in the tourist hotspots in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.

Only time will tell.
