Charges have been laid following an assault at Waypoint Mental Health Centre in Penetanguishene last week. OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas said a nurse suffered wounds to his back along with a broken nose and jaw after trying to help another nurse after she had been stabbed during the attack.
Members of OPSEU plan to gather outside the gates of the Waypoint Centre on Tuesday at noon to show their solidarity with recent victims of violence at the facility. They will be joined by their colleagues at the nearby Central North Correctional Centre.
