The Citizen’s Coalition Against Privatization (CCAP) hosted several enthusiastic mobilizers from across the province this week who join millions of Ontarians that are opposed to Kathleen Wynne’s scheme to privatize Hydro One.
The CCAP has already successfully brought much needed media attention and support from across this province in the ongoing fight against the outrageous sale of Hydro One.
Along with mobilizers, NUPGE and OPSEU staffers were on hand as well as CCAP Chairman and former NDP MPP Rosario Marchese. Participants shared their best practices, successes, challenges and strategies, in order to strengthen their community leadership, political lobbying as well as media relations skills.
“We need to put the brakes on this privatization. The clock is ticking on this deal. Don’t wait until it’s too late, because once it’s gone, it may be gone forever. We still have time to stop the scheme and we need your help to keep fighting,” said Warren (Smokey) Thomas, OPSEU President who was also on hand for the meeting.
Local chapters are being organized across the province with the aim of having town council and general public meetings. The CCAP encourages everyone to join in and help show Premier Wynne that the fight against this sell off isn’t over.
