It has been over 30 years since the murder of 14 young women at Polytechnique Montréal (December 6, 1989). This act of violent misogyny shook our country and led Parliament to designate December 6 as The National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women. As we mourn their loss and remember their lives, we reaffirm our commitment to fight the hatred that led to this tragedy, and the misogyny that still exists today.

The Ford Conservatives are using legislation to impede workers’ right to free and fair collective bargaining. The use of the Notwithstanding Clause to pass Back-to-Work legislation, is an attack on all workers in Ontario. If he gets away with it, all other workers will face the same threat: contracts imposed by law instead of free collective bargaining. Show your solidarity for striking CUPE Ontario Education Workers by engaging in the actions below!
