Labour Pains Event


Denzil Minnan-Wong, Ward 34 councillor and member of the Employee and Labour Relations Committee will face off against Newstalk1010 Host Jerry Agar, University of Toronto Prof. Laurel MacDowell, and Ryerson University Prof. Maurice Mazerolle.

“We’re excited to have such an accomplished group of individuals sit together to discuss the city’s labour pains,” said coalition president Matthew McGuire. “With the possibility of a major work stoppage this weekend, this will be an event you cannot miss.”
