This speech was delivered on September 1, 2013 at the founding convention of Unifor, a new mega union created by the Canadian Autoworkers and the Canadian Energy and Paper Workers Union.
I'm so very happy and honoured to be able to share this historic day with you.
The energy in this room -- and the hope the founding of this new union has inspired across the country -- is contagious.
It feels like this could be the beginning of the fight back we have all been waiting for, the one that will chase Harper from power and restore the power of working people in Canada.
So welcome to the world Unifor.
