Labour Union Marches Down King Street

A protest snaking it's way through King Street this afternoon -- the New Brunswick Federation of Labour holding a demonstration over the recent public sector job cuts on both the provincial and federal level.

Marilyn Quinn is the President of the NB Nurses Union and she tells CHSJ News there are hidden costs to constant tax cuts.

She says less taxes mean reduced services which will result in less money for the community

She says less taxes affects healthcare, education, and highways.

Quinn believes the solution lies in the fair taxation of people and corporations.
