In response to a Throne Speech in the Legislature, the CEP has lashed out on behalf of Ontario’s forestry workers.

“Ontario’s forest based industries, tens of thousands of mill workers and dozens of communities across the province are being abandoned by the provincial government at a time of crisis,” said CEP Ontario vice-president Cec Makowski.

“The Throne Speech,” he said, “paid little more than lip service to the cries of help from workers and municipal leaders experiencing the crisis in places like Dryden, Red Rock, Thunder Bay, Kenora, Cornwall, Sugeon Falls, Kapuskasing and others.

“No wonder there is a growing sentiment in the North for separation from Ontario,” Makowski added.

The McGuinty Government has come under recent fire from various forestry organizations for failing to address the crisis that’s becoming a paramount problem in the province of Ontario.
