No injuries after tour bus hits gate of PM’s residence, 24 Sussex Dr.

No one has been reported hurt after a tour bus struck a gate outside 24 Sussex Dr. in Ottawa, the official residence of the prime minister.

An amphibious bus known as the “Amphibus” collided with the gate just after 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Ottawa paramedics say no one was injured. Ottawa police are on scene, and a police spokesperson says no one has been arrested or charged at this time.

24 Sussex Dr. is one of the main stops on the Amphibus tour, according to operator Lady Dive Tours

Owner Etienne Cameron told CTV News Ottawa by email there were no passengers on board the bus at the time and the driver is all right. 

Cameron said a morning check is performed on the bus each day prior to any tours.

While 24 Sussex Dr. has long been the official home of Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau does not live there because the home is badly in need of renovations. A recent report prepared by the National Capital Commission, which oversees federal properties in the nation’s capital, said the aging home needs more than $36 million worth of repairs.
