Thousands of Union members protest in Toronto
Thousands of union members have hit the streets in downtown Toronto to protest federal telecom rules they fear will allow U.S. giant Verizon to jump into the Canadian Wireless Market.
The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers and Canadian Auto
Workers union demonstrators called on the Conservative government to
undo recent changes opening the market to foreign entry.
The show of force comes one day before the two unions
formally merge into Unifor, which will be the country's largest
private sector union with more than 300-thousand members.
