A message from Mark Hancock and Charles Fleury
It is with deep sadness that we have learned of three CUPE members who were among the victims of Monday’s tragic vehicular assault near Mel Lastman Square in Toronto.
CUPE 4400 member Renuka Amarasinghe was killed in the attack. Renuka was a single mother and a Nutrition Services worker who had worked at a number of Toronto District School Board schools, most recently at Earl Haig Secondary School. Renuka was also a well-loved member of the Scarborough community.
