EDMONTON -- Starting today, there will be extra security guards patrolling Edmonton transit facilities.
The 10 additional security guards are in addition to more video surveillance as well.
The new measures will remain in place for the next two months and come after a number of attacks in recent months involving white men targetting women of colour.
The city says the attacks have happened in areas with fewer passengers.
