Saluting the TTC Supervisory Honour Guard for 25 years of service

We all know that these are challenging and stressful times that we’re working through. TTC employees have done a tremendous job in keeping our system resilient and able to serve our city during the coronavirus pandemic.

I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize a special anniversary. It’s my pleasure to congratulate the TTC Supervisory Honour Guard on reaching a quarter-century of service.

TTC Supervisory Honour Guard – Carrying our colours since 1995

Over the past 25 years, the Honour Guard has proudly carried the TTC’s colours in times of celebration and in times of sorrow. Just yesterday, the Honour Guard marched with a parade of TTC and GO Transit vehicles down hospital row on University Avenue in support of healthcare workers across the GTA.

Since forming back in May 1995, they’ve shown tremendous pride in their volunteer duties, and upheld our unwavering traditions of safety, service and courtesy.

The Honour Guard has represented the TTC with absolute dignity by marching in countless ceremonies and parades, in lock-step with the City’s finest Honour Guards – fire, paramedics and police. They’ve also stood silently and stoically at the funerals of our colleagues.

We can all draw inspiration by their commitment to co-workers and to the public we serve. Their leadership and the example they set as Honour Guard members is what makes the TTC one of the most visible and vital public service organizations in the GTA.

On behalf of the Board, the Executive Team and all employees, I’d like to extend our sincerest gratitude and wish the Honour Guard continued success in the future.

And please continue to exercise personal vigilance, such as physical distancing and regular hand washing or sanitizing, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of our employees continues to be top of mind for myself and the Executive. We simply can’t let our guard down.

Stay safe and stay well.
