A TTC worker is under investigation for appearing on TV and saying things like "we will kill all Isreal."

He was wearing a TTC janitor's shirt when a Sun News camera crew interviewed him at Al Quds Day demonstration at Queen's Park last weekend.

The transit authority will not share the employee's name but they say there is a chance he could be reprimanded.

TTC spokesperson Brad Ross says would not discuss specifics of this case but says a worker can be written up or possibly suspended or fired for breaking their terms of employment.

Under the transit authority's collective agreement with its union workers, the rules say that a TTC employee must conduct his or her self "in a manner that does not jeopardize the integrity and image of the TTC,” both while on duty and wearing TTC-issued gear off-duty.

Earlier this week, a TTC bus driver was let go after she was caught running a red light while on her route.
