If you’re walking or driving though the intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue, you’ll likely notice a large billboard put up by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union.
It’s launched a four-week ad campaign, with the intent of reminding the Wynne government that it doesn’t have a mandate to privatize public services or sell of public assets.
“The way Kathleen Wynne has been acting she might as well be Stephen Harper. What Wynne and Harper have in common is their disregard for democracy, and that’s what these billboards are all about. Over 80% of Ontarians oppose the sale of Hydro One, but Kathleen Wynne couldn’t care less about what citizens think. Stephen Harper found out what happens to leaders when they lose touch with the values of voters. The same fate awaits Kathleen Wynne if she continues down this arrogant path. Our message to Kathleen Wynne is this: ‘If you don’t want to listen to the democratic will of the people, then pack your bags.” – OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas
The intersection of Yonge and Eglinton sees more pedestrian traffic than any other in the city.
