TTC vehicles to "stop and stay" to honour the memory of 215 Indigenous children, June 1



Tuesday, June 1 at 2:15 p.m., the TTC will bring all of its vehicles to standstill to pause for two minutes of silence to honour the 215 children whose remains were discovered on the grounds of the Kamloops Indian Residential School in Tk’emlups te Secwepemc First Nation territory.

All subway trains stop at station platforms. Bus and streetcar operators will stop their vehicles at a regular service stop before 2:15 p.m. and will remain there during the pause. Wheel-Trans vehicles will stop at a safe location. The TTC will also suspend subway station announcements and social media posts.

On-board PA announcements and on-screen messages, social media posts and TTC.ca will notify TTC passengers about this service interruption.

All service will resume immediately after the two-minute pause.

A TTC news release explains, “The TTC and all its employees express their deepest sympathies for all those whose lives were taken at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School and all Indigenous children who never made it home, the survivors, and their families.”
