Unity rally draws large crowd

Close to 300 people marched from the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission (ONTC) headquarters to City Hall this morning in support of locked out ONTC workers, and Nipissing University staff and to oppose staffing and service cuts at the North Bay Regional Health Centre.

Present for the event were key national, provincial and regional labour leaders, Patrick Brown, leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives and a number of Northern Ontario MPPs

“This is not just about the lockout,” said local Labour Council president Henri Giroux, “this is about democracy.”
