Damn. Luckily the guy didn't get hurt that bad, could've been a lot worse. After he gets struck, the pedestrian crosswalk beep goes off, so technically the guy on the scooter was mainly responsible, he had to make sure the intersection was clear (if you creep into an intersection while it is green, you can take as much time as needed to make sure it is safe to make the turn, even if it becomes red). I don't know, let me know if I am mistaken.
Edit: Just watched it again, @1:03 if you look at the top right corner, you can see the light was red...

landed on the grate to, that must have felt pleasant.
Idiot. How do you miss a vehicle that large. Who cares if it ran a red (everyone in Van does, you should expect it), bus had right of way. Dude's getting torn up in Youtube and CBC comments. Rightly so.
I also don't understand the A* gloves and boots, but t-shirt and jeans...
Holy double repost!
DON'T STUFF THE CAGERS!
^^ Hahahaha, actually OP her posted it first.
Kind of nice to see how many people immediately rushed in to help the rider and pick up the scooter. Restores faith a bit even though the dude should have waited, red light or not.
That's a big intersection. The bus was well committed to going through the very yellow light. The moped just didn't wait for traffic to clear like he should have. Who rides in front of a Bus anyways? "What did you do today.. Did you get hit by a bus?".
Not sure the bus even hit him. If it had, he would have been spun the other way around. If anything it was a minor scrape with the bus. Still, can see the light was red when that guy was finished spinning around, but that was a few seconds later. 50/50 looks to me.
Zoom into street view to see that intersection
What a fucking gomer.
Technicaly, I would say the bus was at fault!.....Yellow means Clear the Intersection and that's exactly what scooter man was doing!.....I see buses doing that late run through intersections everyday driving to work and back in Vancouver!.....Do you think the bus driver would have pulled that shit with a left turning dump truck waiting in the IS!?.....Not likely..... :-/
