TTC metro operator dies after month-long battle with COVID-19 – fr


A Toronto Transit Commission employee who worked for more than two decades has died after a month-long battle with COVID-19.

United Transportation Union (ATU) Local 113, which represents thousands of transit workers in Toronto, and the TTC have confirmed the death of Cam Woodburne, a subway operator in Wilson’s Division.

“He will be missed by all who knew and worked him,” the union tweeted.

The 21-year-old employee died on Wednesday following his 26-day battle with the novel coronavirus.

In a note sent to TTC staff Thursday, CEO Rick Leary said Woodburne will be remembered for his “warmth and kindness.”

“Cam has worked for the TTC for over 20 years – his passing is felt throughout the organization,” Leary wrote in the note.

“Cam’s death is another reminder that this virus can strike anyone at any time.”

The TTC put the flags at half mast on its properties Thursday in honor of Woodburne.
