A TTC transit operator was shot by a BB gun last night while waiting to begin their shift.

President Marvin Alfred spoke to the TTC transit worker , who is doing her best to try to recover from the trauma she experienced. She reinforced that she hopes more can be done by the City of Toronto and the TTC to protect transit workers and Torontonians in general from these senseless acts of violence that occur far too frequently.

Because this is an ongoing investigation, ATU Local 113 has no additional information at this time. We will wait for the police to share further details.

ATU Local 113 continues to call on the TTC and the City of Toronto to keep public transit safe.
