REPEAT – MEDIA ADVISORY: Ontarians virtually “Pack the Galleries” to protect democracy

·1-min read

TORONTO, June 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ontarians are outraged that Ford is recalling the legislature to use the notwithstanding clause to override the constitution, after a judge ruled key parts of the Ford Conservative Government’s Bill 254 to be unconstitutional, says the Ontario Federation of Labour.

On Monday, June 14 @ 10:00 a.m. Ontarians will virtually “Pack the Public Galleries” of the Ontario Legislature to speak out about what Patty Coates, Ontario Federation of Labour President, is calling, “an attempt to silence the people who lost family members in disastrous long-term care conditions, families and education workers who called for safer classrooms, and workers who demanded paid sick days.”

The rally will include speakers from unions, labour councils, and community organizations from across the province.

WHEN: Monday, June 14, at 10:00 a.m.

WHERE: Zoom

To request the Zoom link, media are asked to email mpalermo@ofl.ca.

The Ontario Federation of Labour represents 54 unions and one million workers in Ontario. For information, visit www.OFL.ca and follow @OFLabour on Facebook and Twitter.
