A Winnipeg councillor is panning the city's new master transit plan because he says it doesn't address safety.

Kevin Klein was the lone vote against the proposal when council approved it on Thursday, and he says the safety issue isn't going away.

Klein says a viral video last month showed passengers on a Winnipeg bus being threatened with a knife, and he says seniors are being harassed at bus stops for change.

He says council should be looking at developing a transit police force.
