Talking warranties

Posted by Jerry West

What happened to David Wilcox on a bus in Lower Sackville on saturday has a lot of people talking about the treatment faced by people with brain injuries.

The Annapolis valley man says he was humiliated by an Acadian Bus Lines driver when he boarded the bus.

He says he was ordered to the back of the bus ... while the driver told other passengers she normally kicks drunks off.

Mr. Wilcox hasn't had a drink in a decade and says he was made to feel like an idiot when he attempted to explain his situation.

This is also familiar ground for our guest, Jake MacDonald. He's a brain injury survivor and president of the Annapolis chapter of the Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia.

On the phone-in, Doug Bethune answered your calls about automotive repair.
