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.
