40 drunken teens on Surrey Party bus



CBC is reporting that "Underage drinking in chauffeured vehicles has become the next target for RCMP in Surrey, B.C., after police say officers stopped a bus and found 40 intoxicated teens inside. The RCMP said in a new release that it joined with Surrey bylaw enforcement members to focus enforcement on the so-called party buses. Police said they made their discovery last month during a traffic stop. They found open liquor on the bus and all of those inside were between the ages of 15 and 18. Police said they were acting on a tip that young people were paying a fee and being permitted to drink alcohol on board."

This is nothing new. Teenage party buses have been stinking up Surrey since before my kids were in high school. If your teenage kid is on one of those party buses then they are trailer trash and so are you for letting them. That's all there is to it. There's no such thing as a cool parent. There's just responsible parents and irresponsible parents. Which one are you?

In 2016, Chelsea James, 23, died after falling out of an open door on a party bus en route from Langley to Vancouver. She was one of 28 people on board when she stumbled against the pneumatic passenger door as the vehicle turned left off Hastings Street onto Burrard Street in downtown Vancouver. This is Sodom and Gomorrah. Wickedness never was happiness.

  1. Driver and company ought to be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. I know its an old fashioned charge, but what the hell is going on with party buses full of drunk kids. The provincial government might want to have a look at a law which is clear, "no drinking on party buses or cabs". lose their business license if its permitted.

    In case some parents forget, alcohol is just another drug and it can do a lot of damage to a kids body while they're still growing.

  2. Olde fashioned or not, it's a start and would help to deter this.

    I'd love to see vice squads brought back, but with all the "lifestyle choices" acceptance BS, there'd be not much to enforce ...
