Hot dog roast staged Wednesday, November 16, under Fisher Street billboard

NORTH BAY, Ont. – North Bay Hospital plebiscite rallies being staged this week in Sturgeon Falls, Mattawa, North Bay, and Powasson, are receiving visits from “The School of the 3Ps”. The mobile schoolhouse, sponsored by CUPE Ontario, offers information about the adverse impacts of P3s (Public-Private Partnerships).

The mobile schoolhouse was in North Bay and Sturgeon Falls today, and on Tuesday, November 15, will be in Mattawa and Powasson.

On Wednesday afternoon (November 16), a barbecue hosted by the CUPE District Council will be held under the big billboard at Fisher Street and 3rd Avenue in North Bay. Free hot dogs will be offered.

The billboard display, promoting the plebiscite, targets Premier Dalton McGuinty’s broken election promise “not to privatize hospitals.”

People will have an opportunity to vote on keeping the hospital 100 percent publicly- financed, owned and operated. Region-wide workplace voting will take place on Friday, November 18, and a community plebiscite will be held Saturday, November 19. Advance voting is offered in various locations at the mobile schoolhouse.
