The shock of Friday’s bus crash in Ottawa deepened for many PSAC members as we learned that all three fatalities of the crash were public service workers, two of them PSAC members: Bruce Thomlinson and Anja Van Beek. Thomlinson worked for the Canada Borders Services Agency and Van Beek worked for Treasury Board. Both were on their way home at the time of the accident.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of all the victims of this horrible accident. We would like to also extend our gratitude to the first responders for having done all they could in such a terrible situation.
If you need someone to talk to through difficult times, know that there is help.
