OTTAWA, July 31, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - We were deeply distressed when we
learned of this fatal incident last evening involving a third party
contractor working for Lafarge and a cyclist in Ottawa. Our thoughts
and prayers are with those who are affected by this tragedy, especially
with the family members of the cyclist.
To know that a family has been forever changed by this tragedy is
devastating. The loss is heart wrenching, the impact lasting. Today,
and for many days to come, our hearts will be with the family and
friends as they face the unimaginable.
At Lafarge Canada, safety is our most important value. This terrible
tragedy serves to remind us of the vital importance of safety in our
Lafarge, along with our partner Prestige Haulage, are taking every
necessary step to establish all of the facts and will cooperate fully
with the authorities as they continue their investigation.
