Class action lawsuit seeks $60 million in damages for Ottawa bush crash victims

An Ottawa law office has launched a class action lawsuit seeking financial compensation for people injured and traumatized in last week’s OC Transpo bus crash at Westboro station.

The Merchant Law Group, a national law firm with offices in Ottawa, filed a notice of action Thursday at the Ottawa courthouse — less than one week after the crash that killed three OC Transpo passengers and injured 23 others.

It asks the court to award $60 million in damages to crash victims, and to the families of those injured and killed.

If the assertions about the driver’s questionable ability are true as supervisors are on record stating then this will be settled quickly and quietly.  The tab I suspect would be much higher if the case ever reached the jury stage stage. Why should people be killed for diversity’s sake?
