MADD Canada says public safety could suffer under Ontario's plan to allow grocery stories to sell liquor

“The concern is not about the location of the sales, the concern is who is actually doing the selling,” says MADD Canada CEO Andrew Murie said. “Provided these outlets are run by the LCBO and staffed by trained LCBO personnel, with their established commitment and attention to responsible alcohol sales and social responsibility practices, then we do not believe there would be significant risks.”

OPSEU vs SOUSA
Another lively OPS info picket this morning, as OPSEU set up a reception committee to have a “frank exchange of views” about the Liberals’ privatization, cuts to public services and demands for wage freezes and concessions with Liberal Finance Minister Charles Sousa as he arrived at Ryerson University to announce the date for the provincial budget.
Thanks to the Region 5 mobilizers, OPS bargaining team members (including several who missed the photo) and current and former EBMs who were able to join us on less than 12 hours notice.
