I had been informed from a friend that Welland has taken delivery of another NovaBus this past Saturday (was seen on the QEW through Grimsby). Very likely that may have replaced 1137.

I had felt that the Inveros would last for another 2 years or so after being acquired.
However, I am not at all surprised that the Arbocs would be replaced next year given that they're only built to last about that amount of time.

Welland has ordered 2 30' Vicinity buses as per this morning's press release from Grande West:

Additionally, the Company received new orders from Welland Transit for two (2) 30 foot Vicinity buses

I'm willing to bet New Flyer is going to cease production of the MiDi. They're getting nowhere with it. Good for Grande West.

All depends on how Grande West does in the USA as most of the MiDi sales have seem to be in the USA.

they didn't sell much in Canada doesn't mean they have to cease the production, look at how much sales Midi got in the States

Even though NFI is ceasing the production, or terminating the contract with ADL with the production of Midi in North America(which I don't see this happening as NFI needs that 30ft and 35ft bus model to fill their product line), ADL still has the ability to build them locally right now, just like their double decker Enviro 500

Went to Welland Transit today. 1157 is parked outback with the retired blue bird and London 416. Not sure if its retired or not. Doesn't look like it's moved in awhile.
