"This will be a long investigation", he said.

Bordeleau made it clear while police expect to release the scene Saturday, work collecting evidence, analyzing photos, videos and data, along with interviewing the almost 90 people on the bus is going to be a "slow, painstaking process".

One person was also taken by ambulance to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, although that patient's condition has not yet been made public. "Thank you to the first responders who rushed to help - we're monitoring the situation closely", Trudeau said in a tweet Friday evening.
