First Look: Anti-Verizon Protest Underway in Downtown Toronto [PICS]

Share:

Yesterday we told you about the anti-Verizon rally taking place today in Toronto, organized by the The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers (CEP) and the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW), soon to be known as Unifor, a case when two becomes one (Spice Girls line).

The protest is to make noise against a “takeover” from Verizon, which would apparently put Canadian jobs at stake. It also looks like a great way for Unifor to get some media attention via the controversial wireless debate, since it’s a brand new union, Canada’s largest.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Harper denied the government has created loopholes favouring Verizon.

What do you think about the protest? Do you support it or not?
