The continued cancellations are part of the ongoing transit strike — impacting SeaBus and bus service — that could potentially escalate next week.

On Wednesday morning, Unifor, the union representing nearly 5,000 Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC) employees, announced that a “complete system shutdown” would be coming to Metro Vancouver’s transit system next week.

The shutdown would take place on Wednesday, November 27; Thursday, November 28; and Friday, November 29. During that time, no members of Unifor Local 111 or 2200 would report for work and would begin picketing.
