To me, Labour Day represents a celebration of labour’s critical contribution to making Canada a more fair and equal society. Canada has celebrated Labour Day nearly as long as our country has existed.

The Green Party and I share the belief that labour rights are human rights. I believe in the rights of workers to organize and in the free collective bargaining process. The Green Party understands that decades of action has resulted in a stronger, healthier workforce and society.

Canada is strong when the labour movement is strong.

Happy Labour Day!
