Prince George transit bus drivers will be greeting passengers with a little more colour in the coming weeks. On Tuesday, Marjo van Helvoirt Koop, a coordinator with the Canadian Cancer Society (and Dave Bradshaw, City of Prince George manager Parks, Transit and Public Waste) was giving out pins bearing the yellow daffodil motif to local bus drivers. Shown here, transit driver Jeff Waters gets “pinned” before continuing along his bus route from Spruceland mall. Teresa MALLAM/Free Press
