Labour Day cel­e­bra­tion in Lamoureux Park

Seaway News - - News -

CORN­WALL, On­tario - The dozens came down to Lamoureux Park on Mon­day, Sept. 3 to cel­e­brate Labour Day with the Labour Coun­cil Pic­nic.

Louise Lanc­tot of the Corn­wall Labour Coun­cil said that this pic­nic has been hap­pen­ing ev­ery year for as long as she could re­mem­ber.

This year saw bouncy cas­tles, a mini-train, live en­ter­tain­ment, face paint­ing and free food.

“To­day is a day for work­ers to come and en­joy them­selves,” said Lanc­tot.

She ex­plained that there was still an im­por­tant place for Labour Day in mod­ern Canada.

“I think it is more im­por­tant than ever,” she said. “Labour is the pro­tec­tor of the so­cial con­di­tion in Canada. Labour cares about the en­vi­ron­ment, eq­uity and those who are less for­tu­nate. Unions are more im­por­tant now than ever be­fore.”

Labc­tot ex­plained that Labour was also push­ing for a na­tion­ally ad­min­is­tered phar­ma­care pro­gram.

She also said that in the com­ing week, the Labour Coun­cil would be send­ing rec­om­men­da­tions to its mem­bers on dif­fer­ent can­di­dates run­ning in this year’s mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion in Corn­wall.
