TTC reaches settlement with Black rider who sued agency for racial profiling

The TTC has reached a settlement with a Black rider who sued the agency for racial profiling after he was violently accosted by three fare inspectors last year.

In a statement released through his lawyer Thursday morning, Reece Maxwell-Crawford said he had met with TTC CEO Rick Leary on Wednesday to discuss his civil case as well as recent efforts the TTC has taken to address racial discrimination.

“It is very important to me that Mr. Leary has apologized on behalf of the TTC and that the lawsuit I started has been settled,” Maxwell-Crawford said.

He commended the transit agency for launching a system-wide anti-racism plan and instituting training aimed at tackling racial bias among employees.
