Moist at NS Div: privatization not the answer


Paul Moist spoke to the Nova Scotia Division convention yesterday before meeting editors at the Halifax Chronicle Herald and doing a media interview with CTV Atlantic.

His message: "Privatization, in any form is not the answer."

Delegates talked about confronting privatizers in their communities.

Delegates also watched and applauded a CUPE national-produced video about the domino effects of privatization and the domino effects of solidarity and collective action.

Claude Généreux challenged the delegates to a quiz on his financial report.  "'S' plus 'S' equals 'S' - what do you think that equation stands for?"  he asked.

One voice shouted "Solidarity, Solidity equals Success."

"So right," said Généreux once again bringing delegates to their feet.
