Police investigating incidents on picket lines

The Owen Sound Sun Times reports that city police are investigating “several incidents” against picketers outside of the Owen Sound Family Health Organization.

According to a police news release, drivers were becoming impatient and several confrontations occurred and officers were called to the scene.

The Sun Times quoted OPSEU Local 276 picket captain Tina Roscoe saying that most people coming into the parking lot were willing to listen and were supportive, but there were some who had no intention of stopping.
