Why is nobody talking about this? Where are the public protests, the letters to our MPP and our local news media? Why aren’t we standing up for our community?
The Wynne government is quietly privatizing one of the major employers in Sault Ste. Marie; Ontario Lottery & Gaming, and we are saying and doing nothing. What are we waiting for?
This has got to be one of the best kept secrets in Provincial politics. OLG, just like hydro, consistently turns a profit, (a portion of which goes into our city coffers), and provides approximately 600 well-paying jobs to the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie. Listen people: the job losses have already begun!
I am afraid for the future of our city. Tenaris, Essar, City Daycare, OLG – how much more can we take? How much longer are the citizens of Sault Ste. Marie going to sit quietly by as our city takes it’s last breathe?
It is time for action! It is time for all of us to speak up and tell the Wynne government NO! Stop the privatization of public assets! The city of Sault Ste. Marie cannot survive any more job loss!
