Global News is reporting on OPSEU's demand that Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff  be kicked out of the Conservative caucus for his public attacks on the basic rights of women.

Global quotes OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas saying that Oosterhoff’s extreme statements are a “chilling threat to the right of women to control their own bodies. At the very least the Premier should send a signal to women by booting him out of his caucus.”

OPSEU First Vice President / Treasurer Eduardo (Eddy) Almeida is also quoted in the article.

“I know plenty of people in their 20s who bring a lot of wisdom to the table and have taught me things, but this young man has a lot of growing up to do,” Almeida said. "This is an attack on women. Period. The only way Doug Ford can show that he respects women’s rights is to give this arrogant little twerp the boot.”
