Article Information

Background We met with OC Transpo officials to discuss our goal of a public service campaign
Reason After our initial meeting in February with OC Transpo and City Hall was not fruitful, we saw City Hall as a dead end. However, with media reports of an arrest and several people coming forward to share their stories of being harassed, OC Transpo agreed to meet with us again. This time, their approach was must more respectful and we felt like we were making progress.
Comment It was great to finally be concentrating on the actual work, rather than fighting for recognition and respect.
Outcome We were granted another meeting.
