Letter from the Canadian Labour Congress

Greetings Canadian Union of Public Employees,

Hardline Conservative parties now hold government in the majority of provinces, and so the stakes are high for workers and our families in the upcoming federal election.

An Andrew Scheer government in Ottawa is dangerous. With the help of his friends, Doug Ford and Jason Kenney, Andrew Scheer will have the power to roll back hard-won social gains and re-write the Canadian Constitution, all while continuing to sow the seeds of fear and division.

It is up to us – as working people across this great region – to call on Canadians to vote for fairness and defeat Andrew Scheer.

The Canadian Labour Congress and the Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council are holding an election training camp on Thursday September 12th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel (formerly the Holiday Inn Harbourview hotel) at 101 Wyse Road in Dartmouth, NS.

This election training camp will give you the skills to defeat Andrew Scheer and elect candidates who support workers’ priorities like universal pharmacare, retirement security, climate action, good jobs and inclusive communities.

We are inviting you and other labour and community activists across our region to attend this important training camp.

You can register for this training camp by clicking here: https://action.canadianlabour.ca/hdetc

There is a Facebook event page for circulation (and to invite your friends) at: https://www.facebook.com/events/228221354760930/
