Days later, Black & McDonald said one of its employees was no longer with the company, adding that this was an "isolated incident."
"We apologize to everyone impacted by the recent incident in Ottawa of unacceptable driving by one of our van drivers. We want to reassure the public that safety is our #1 priority," the company said in a Facebook post Sunday.
