CBC: Winnipeg Transit drivers raising funds after colleague killed in on-the-job attack

February 15, 2017 — 

As CBC reports:

After a Winnipeg Transit driver was stabbed to death, fellow bus drivers are raising money to support their colleague’s family….

A separate GoFundMe page has been created by a University of Manitoba student. Taylor Nimchonok said taking public transit to and from campus is part of the daily routine for many university students, and Fraser was an important part of that community.

“I was just devastated. I thought it was incredibly unfair, a huge injustice was done,” Nimchonok said.

The money from that fundraising page will also be donated to Fraser’s family.
