Former corporate and commercial lawyer Alain Chiasson has found a new line of work and a new home. Chiasson and his partner, Carole Hebert, bought Queen City Shuttle & Charters (QCS) in February 2018, and already love their new home town of Nelson. “I feel like I should have been living in the Kootenays all my life,” said Chiasson. “I feel like this is home.” Even before Greyhound announced the end of its service in B.C., Chiasson was exploring ways to increase service from QCS. Ongoing updates to freight and passenger services will be posted on the company’s website.
