TORONTO, March 20, 2015 /CNW/ - The union that represents Toronto Transit Commission will follow its usual practice and will not comment on the Toronto Police Service charges today against the operator of a TTC bus that killed Amaria Diljohn on December 21, 2014 near the corner of Neilson Road and Finch Ave. East.

"Amaria's death was a great tragedy that affected us all," said Bob Kinnear, President of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113. "We cannot bring her back but her grieving family deserves to know what happened."
