Warren (Smokey) Thomas, President of OPSEU, will be on the Roy Green radio show on Sunday, August 27 at approximately 4:05 p.m. to discuss a fine imposed on the Royal Ottawa Hospital.

On August 16, the hospital was fined $75,000 - three years after a patient attacked and repeatedly stabbed a nurse at its Brockville facility. Thomas called the fine "a slap on the wrist."

Tune in to the station nearest you for the Roy Green Show on Sunday at 4 p.m. to hear lively discussion about the violence that is taking place in our mental health facilities - and ways it can be prevented.
