Regina, SK – A candlelight vigil will be held tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in memory of the victims of the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting.

“The reason for the vigil is to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and start a conversation about violence towards the the GLBT community,” said Tim Hubick, Chair of the PSAC Regina Human Rights Committee. “These kinds of hate crimes affect our well-being, our families, our friends and our communities.”

Workers will take to the street today to rally against the attack on rural Alberta communities like Vegreville, where the federal government plans to close the Case Processing Centre (CPC) and move it to Edmonton at a cost of $46.6 million.
 

To mark the first anniversary of Phoenix, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), has asked members to take individual actions to draw attention to the Phoenix pay system and its continuing problems and let the Liberal government know that one year of pay problems is one year too many.
