Manufacturing Matters

I gave at talk at CAW 199's Manufacturing Matters community forum yesterday. The event was well atended by local, provincial and federal politicians and drew at least a hundred members of the community. Check out the campaign here.

Canada's manufacturing sector is in crisis. Almost every week another Canadian plant shuts its doors, files for bankruptcy or announces its intention to move its operations out of the country. Good manufacturing jobs are disappearing at an alarming rate across the country and the Harper government has done nothing to stop this hemorrhaging. The clear message to Canadian workers is that the government simply does not care.

The campaign culminates into a demonstration on Parliament Hill on Wed May 30 at 12:30pm
