Correctional peace officers from across Ontario will gather at Queen’s Park on the first day of the OPSEU Convention, Thursday, May 8, to pay tribute to those who have fallen in the line of duty. Officers will assemble on the south lawn of Queen’s Park at noon and the service will begin at 12:20 p.m. Representatives from all three political parties have been invited to attend this service, along with Corrections Minister Yasir Naqvi and Deputy Minister Steve Rhodes. The event will conclude by 1 p.m.
Corrections locals are asked to send as many representatives to this event as possible, in uniform or professional attire. Corrections delegates to the OPSEU Convention are also asked to participate. If unable to attend, you can send an e-mail message of support that will be read out at the event.
For members attending, please note that associated costs are at your local’s or personal expense. Any locals who plan to send buses to the event are asked to contact Dan Sidsworth to verify the numbers attending.
We look forward to seeing you there.
