Letter: Union thanks Ron Cannan

Your focus on the many concerns of our ridership…has always been well respected…

Dear Ron:

On behalf of the Amalgamated Transit Union local 1722, I wish to thank you for your many years of service and dedication to our community.

Your focus on the many concerns of our ridership (in particular seniors, students, people with special needs), has always been well respected and appreciated among my membership. You have always been a friend to Transit and we hope that spirit will continue in your absence.

When we met in Ottawa to address the assaults on bus drivers through legislation, you were ‘on board’ to help make a difference—now there is a law to reflect that and I am proud to say in perpetuity you were a positive part of that process. Thank you Ron.

I am not sure what your plans are going forward or where you will end up, but I do know whatever it is you will be very successful and they will be very lucky to have you.

Scott Lovell, president,

Amalgamated Transit Union 1722
