PROTEST AND DISRUPTION TO INDUSTRY AT THE AMBASSADOR BRIDGE
Libby Znaimer is joined by Sarnia’s Mayor Mike Bradley as well as Perrin Beatty, President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and then Shane Wark, Assistant to the Unifor National President.
Yesterday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford released a statement on the Ambassador Bridge protests. He said: the “illegal occupation and blockade happening in Ontario must stop.” Mayor Bradley is also being blunt about the situation and describing it as “economic terrorism”.
