Canadian Correctional Officers hosting 'Beach Party' protest in Port Sydney today
More than 100 members of the Union of Canadian Correctional Officers are holding a ‘Beach Party’ demonstration with their families in Port Sydney at 1pm today. Several dozen of the Canadian correctional officers are from the Beaver Creek and Fenbrook Institutions in Gravenhurst. They will protest Treasury Board President Tony Clement’s unilateral elimination of sick leave benefits for correctional officers. Clement’s home is along the beach in Port Sydney. More details will be available in a press release later today.
