Mayor Watson comments on OC Transpo crash

OTTAWA – Following the announcement of charges related to last January’s OC Transpo bus crash earlier today (Aug. 23), Mayor Jim Watson released a statement.

“Today is a difficult day for the families of those three residents who lost their lives and all those who were injured in this tragic accident; my thoughts remain with them,” Watson said. “This has been a traumatic experience for many members of our community, including within our OC Transpo family.

“My thanks go to all first responders and transportation safety experts who stepped up to help on the night of the incident and over the last eight months. As the matter is now before the courts, I will not be able to comment any further.”
