On April 23, 2009, a Memorial Plaque dedicated to ATU 113 Member Antonio Almeida was unveiled in a small park on the west side of Yonge Street between Lytton Avenue and Alexandra Blvd., just above the spot in the Yonge St. subway tunnel where a workplace accident took his life exactly two years ago and seriously injured Tony’s co-workers on the tunnel asbestos removal crew.Speaking at the ceremony in this video were Gary Webster, Chief General Manager of the Toronto Transit Commission and Bob Kinnear, President of the Amalgamated Transit Workers Local 113.
