Protesters gathered peacefully outside White Oaks in Niagara-on-the-Lake on Oct. 26 to voice frustration with Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s decision to repeal Bill 148; which would have increased the minimum wage to $15 in the province.
Ford had been spoken at the NOTL Chamber of Commerce about new road signs to be installed near the border. The signs read: “Welcome to Ontario, Open for Business.”
Protesters however carried signs advocating people to “fight for $15 and fairness.”
Among the demonstrators was Kyle Hoskin, Unit Vice President for Emterra Environmental with CUPE 1287 and Niagara Falls MPP Wayne Gates.
