Trades workers for the second day in a row staged a protest outside the Courtney Bay Inn. This is to voice their displeasure with workers from Alberta coming in and taking jobs at the CanaPort LNG Terminal while many of them are looking for work. Spokes-person Terry Maceachern tells CHSJ News, this just doesn't make any sense.
The crowd was loud but well behaved with a strong police presence on hand video taping the demonstration. The workers were hoping to get a word in with Premier Graham as the New England Govenors and Eastern Canadian Premiers Conference continues at the Delta.
