OTTAWA, March 24, 2016 /CNW/ - Executive, staff and members of Carpenters' Union Local 93 and the Carpenters' District Council of Ontario are united in mourning today as one of its respected brothers lost his life while working on a construction site yesterday morning in Ottawa.
Olivier Bruneau was a committed, dedicated and accomplished Carpenter-Apprentice as well as a valued member of the Carpenters' Union Local 93. It is incomprehensible that at just 25 years of age such a tragic and avoidable workplace incident robbed the life of Brother Bruneau. He will be remembered and missed by many.
It is with heavy hearts that we give our full support and extend condolences to Brother Olivier Bruneau's family during this profoundly devastating time. In memory of our lost Brother, provisions will be set to honor his life and assist his grieving family.
