Earlier today, Marc Thibault, Daniel Dubé and Dr. Klaus Hochheim died in a tragic helicopter crash.  The helicopter was assigned to the CCGS Amundsen.  UCTE National President Christine Collins issued the following statement:

“These men worked alongside our members.  And like our members, the important work they performed often goes unnoticed by the majority of Canadians until something tragic like this happens.  It is a reminder of how thankful we are for the commitment of public servants.

On behalf of all of our members, I would like to express my condolences to the Thibault, Dubé and Hochheim families and friends.”
