Thousands march on Queen’s Park to protect health care

TORONTO – September 13 labour and community groups stood up for health care, marching past Toronto’s “hospital row” and rallying on the lawn of the Ontario legislature.

Singing, dancing and remembering those who died unnecessarily — speakers vowed to make politicians accountable during this election.

Sponsored by the Ontario Health Coalition, buses brought activists from across the province to the rally. A moment of silence was observed for those who had recently died during Ontario’s C Difficle outbreak.

OPSEU 2nd Vice-President Nancy Pridham was among labour leaders who joined community activists on the speaker’s podium.
