Parents challenge school bus fee

Some parents in the Eastern Townships are being charged extra to put their kids on the school bus, because their children live in two homes.
Sherbrooke mom Christel Lefebvre has two children who live primarily with her, but who spend part of the week with their father.

Our Alison Brunette looks into that story.
