Joint Statement by Community and Labour Groups Concerning Federal Changes to Employment Insurance

To the Prime Minister of Canada:

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

Sisters and Brothers,

The world has lost one of the greatest activists of our time, Nelson Mandela. Yesterday at the age of 95, Mandela passed away, leaving a legacy that has, and will continue to inspire the world.

From the injustices of the apartheid system, rose a leader whose convictions were not diminished even in the face of decades of imprisonment. Advocating for racial equality, economic justice and peace; Mandela became the first black President of South Africa in 1994.
