TTC stop-and-stay in memory of 215 Indigenous children

June 2021

At 2:15 p.m. on June 1, the TTC will bring all of its vehicles to standstill and 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 will be held at station platforms. Bus and streetcar Operators will stop their vehicles at a regular service stop prior to 2:15 p.m. and remain there for the duration of the pause. Wheel-Trans vehicles will be brought to a stop at a safe location. Subway station announcements and social media posts will also be suspended during this time. TTC customers will be notified of this service interruption via onboard PA announcements and on-screen messages where possible, social media posts and TTC.ca.

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