Traffic will be a pita in Coquitlam specially if you take transit

The Bus Loop and parts of the highway are quarantined due to a hazmat issue "suspicious white powder"

Hazmat situation at Coquitlam Station Bus Loop
Crews focused on a garbage bin

COQUITLAM (NEWS1130) - A suspicious white substance has been found on a Bus in Coquitlam, and
emergency crews are being extra careful with the situation because at the same as time, around noon ,the driver of the bus had a small seizure, and a couple of passengers reported feeling ill.

Crews are decontaminating the area, but Drew Snider with TransLink says they are all okay.

"Right now because we don't know what the substance is, the entire bus loop is quarantined, there is yellow tape all around and and anybody in the loop at the time is stuck behind the yellow tape."

A bus driver in the area told us they are hosing people down.

News1130's Kim Seale is flying overhead and says a huge area of Coquitlam Station Bus Loop near Barnet and Lougheed is taped off.

"I'm just actually surprised at the area that's taped off, that's a huge area, that bus loop can handle a number of buses, the entire bus loop area itself is taped off, in addition to that there is a small portion of the park area, where you would park your vehicles for the park and ride, that's also under yellow tape."

Just after noon, a caller to the newsroom said the bus drivers was receiving medical attention. "There was a bus driver, he was on the ground, he didn't look too good. So the paramedics are checking it out, there was tons of fire trucks all around."

News1130's Treena Wood went by shortly afterwards, and said hazmat crews are focusing on a garbage can, and have spread out a tarp, and put up a tent.

RCMP are only saying they are on scene, not what has happened.

The West Coast Express station parking lot is being used as a temporary bus loop.

If you're DT, pay the extra money and take the Westcoast Express.

Hwy1 East completely stopped at the Cape Horn onramp. Good thing I took Brunette.

Snider said two people got off the bus at the Coquitlam loop this morning and told the 97B line bus driver they felt ill. He continued his way to the Lougheed station and upon his arrival back to Coquitlam began to fell sick, too, and collapsed.

He wasn't taken to hospital, however, and Snider said he was up and walking around later in the day.

No hazardous material found on Coquitlam bus - News1130

COQUITLAM (NEWS1130) - A bus driver and several passengers got sick, but it appears the unknown white powder found on the bus is not to blame.

Emergency crews were extra careful with the situation because at the same time the substance was reported, the driver of the bus had a small seizure, and a couple of passengers reported feeling ill. It is now believed the seizure and illnesses are not related.

Crews are stilldecontaminating the area, and Drew Snider with TransLink says everyone is okay.

"Right now because we don't know what the substance is, the entire bus loop is quarantined, there is yellow tape all around and and anybody in the loop at the time is stuck behind the yellow tape."

The area is still closed but RCMP expect it to re-open shortly.

I don't know if this was related but I saw an unmarked crown vic being pushed by a construction truck being lead by an unmarked ford police truck with lights flashing right before the port mann yesterday.

Traffic was backed all the way to kensington.
