But the fact that the body panels are not flush and missaligned is because the frame is warped? Or they just poor maintenance?

The buses that ran/run for Cestar College where old, used (i'm guessing Ex. GO?) and overall in crappy condition. The buses are old by themselves, and the college didn't look after them whatsoever. My guess is poor maintenance.  

 

I only saw old Prevost buses like some LeMirages and some 90s h3-45

 

found a picture online of what could be a now cestar college bus. Image result for prevost le mirage toronto cestar college

Spotted a blue painted LeMirage (looked to be an ex. GO) a couple of days ago on the QEW sporting a "don't follow me" route sign.

Spotted an ex. Go Transit MCI D4500 unit in Vancouver, BC still with Ontario license plates not long ago... I wonder if someone local here bought this unit used:

Regarding this bus crash, I don't think it is not in any shape for a bus to be driving down that road. I don't know the speed limit but anything over 40kmph is not safe. 

I have never driven that road but judging from the picture, I would not want to drive a bus on that road with people on board in the rain in the dark.

During the day when the weather is good, maybe. But not in those conditions.

Is it a recap J4500 or new style J4500?  I guess Leduc still wants to keep Classic Alliance Motorcoach a separate entity.

2013 J4500 - so its New Style ... its an Ex-Tim Hortons bus , Leduc operates separately but they share buses

Is Can-AR being re-branded to TOK transit? Or is that another division?

Did you even try literally typing Can-ar into google?

My allergy to stupid is flaring up again.

I know that they are owned by Tokmakjian Incorporated, which maintains YRT buses and such. But when I was there last week, they had some J4500's rebranded as TOK Transit instead of Can-AR

You are right, Can-Ar is being rebranded to TOK Coachlines:

And he would have found that out, had he simply typed in Can-ar and hit search. Evidently he has internet access, same as the rest of us- and I’m assuming opposable thumbs.

Five effing letters and a hyphen. It actually required more effort to appear lazy and ask here, on the board.

The pop up specifically answering his question is the first thing you’ll see, obvious as a flashing neon sign.

It's to bad, I liked the name Can-ar. Someone once told me that Can-ar stood for Canadian Armenian whether that's true or not I have no idea?
