Hundreds of public sector union members rallied outside the Ontario government buildings on Thursday to protest the provincial budget.

"This is about the kind of Ontario that we want," said OPSEU Executive Board Member Ibrahim Bozai, "We are anticipating serious cuts. We’re anticipating the government digging in their heels when it comes to investments in public services, and more privatization."

In a surprise announcement yesterday, Ontario's Beer Store says that smaller Ontario brewers will gain greater access to both the Beer Stores' stock shelves and boardroom. 

UFCW Canada, which represents Beer Store workers, says that it approves of the changes, calling it a "new era" for the Beer Store.

"The changes mean more input and opportunity for Ontario-brewers and more choice for Ontario consumers at the lowest average retail beer prices in Canada," said Rob Edwards, president of UFCW Canada Local 12R24, which represents more than 6,000 Local 12R24 members work at The Beer Store retail and warehouse locations in Ontario.
