"Ontarians agree: privatizing public assets is terrible policy," said OPSEU Local 165 president Wayne Peck. "Privatizing the LCBO by the back door, as the Liberals are doing, will mean huge losses in public dollars that fund the social services we all rely on. That's the message we want to spread through these pickets."

OPSEU Local 165 represents more than 200 employees in 28 stores from Wingham to Grand Bend, to Langton, to Brantford.
