Metro Transit Statement from General Manager Patricia Soanes

(Monday, April 20, 2009) Over the weekend, I and many of my colleagues at Metro Transit learned of the sudden death of Dann Little, a Bus Operator. We at Metro Transit were saddened to learn of his passing.

We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, his friends and co-workers at this time of loss. HRM, Metro Transit and Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 508 are taking every step to ensure that support is made available to our employees, as well as, to Mr. Little’s family during this very difficult period.

Out of respect for the privacy of the family, Metro Transit will not be commenting in any further detail at this time. Metro Transit and its Operators appreciate the public’s concern and sympathy.
