Help for Irvine "JUBAL" family
My sincerest condolences to the Fraser family and Irvine's friends from a member of Boston Carmens Union Local 589. My dad drove a bus for 29 years in Boston, recently retired, and now provides me with irreplaceable childcare help so that I can work my trolley job. Irvine's story is heartbreaking and an attack on one of us is an attack on all transit workers. God bless his soul.
http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/manitoba/transit-drivers-raise-funds-1.3983411 In response to Patricia's comment below I thought I would share this CBC article that advises There are two legitimate GoFundMe set up to assist the family in the wake of this tragedy.
As of tomorrow morning friday feb 17th I will be transfering control of this go fund me campain over to Jubal's wife Wanda and family. We will be making a small presentation at the rally @ city hall to the family. Thank you everyone for making this such a great success.
Does anyone monitor these Go Fund Me sites to make sure the funds go to the family? I've seen 2 for Irvine Fraser's family already today. One has raised almost $8000 and the other has raised over $3000.
My deepest sympathy to Irvine's family, friends, co-workers and all of the ATU families far and wide. RIP my brother... in that big bus garage in heaven.... Laura Wooldridge Member of ATU 279 Ottawa

First I'd like to offer my condolences for your lost. I was so bothered by this senseless lost of a life of someone just doing he's job to provide for his family he loved so much. I hope that you find strength in all of the people coming together to support your family in this difficult time of your life's. I only wish I could do more to offer help with lifting your spirts in this difficult time. I wish you all well and will pray for all of you.

My condolences to the family, I was after a passenger on the bus routes that Irving was working. Always was polite to everyone who was on the bus. Hugs and tons of prayers to his wife (who was so kind and always asked how you are doing) and the rest of the family
I'm so sorry for his family and offer my sincere condolences.
am so sorry of the loss and yes bus drivers should have a hull shild to pertect them but now there going to do some thing like that after what happened now it all ways happens when some one gets killed they do some thing about it now should of been done long ago but am sorry for the loss and condolence to the family and friends for JUBAL rip
I use transit daily and appreciate so much our bus drivers. Most of us say Thank You! as we get off but there are some people who have no respect for this great service . This is a shocking event. Sincere sympathy to the family and all drivers.
I've learned that GoFundMe has several safeguards in place to ensure that the money goes to the right place. I'm relieved to know both pages are legitimate and the funds from both will find their way to the family when the family is ready to reach out.
