By Jack Bourassa  Imagine being told you’re not a person. Imagine being stripped of your rights. Imagine being banned from participating in public and political life.  Less than a century ago, women were not recognized as “persons” in Canada. On October 18, we’ll mark Person’s Day in Canada. It’s the day in 1929 when the highest court of appeal included women in the legal definition of “persons.” Let’s learn from our history while honouring those who strived to pave the way for women’s participation in public and political life.

Orange Shirt Day (September 30) is dedicated to commemorating the residential school experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation.    On this day, and every day, PSAC North continues to be committed to work for true reconciliation with Indigenous communities.     Together, let’s come in the spirit of reconciliation, hope and care for one another.    Take Action!

By Jack Bourassa    Labour day tradition involves flipping burgers while being surrounded by friends, co-workers, union members and supporters. The energy of the cheerful crowd fills the park and union activists chat with the public and hand out leaflets. Signing petitions and taking action on issues that matter to our communities — that’s what we often do on this special day. Kids have their special treats too: face painting, colouring pages, play-dough and lots of laughter. I’ve always looked forward to Labour Day.

By Jack Bourassa    After weeks, months and years of continuous job searching they still can’t find a job that helps them pay their bills. They can’t pay rent and might soon face eviction and are at risk of becoming homeless. Single parents have to choose between, putting food on the table or paying for their rent. Their kids haven’t had nutritious food in months. They’re lucky if the school runs a lunch program.

Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada North participated in a number of events throughout the North marking the fourth anniversary of the failed Phoenix pay system on February 27.  As work to stabilize Phoenix continues, PSAC members are still suffering its fallout. Endless payroll problems place a heavy burden on families.

By Jack Bourassa    I’d first like to express my support to those peacefully and globally protesting the death of George Floyd. Your courage is both humbling and inspiring! The recent outcry for change heard around the world is the result of yet another unnecessary black life lost. George Floyd was just the most recent victim, in a long list of victims who’ve lost their lives to prejudice, racism and systemic injustice. This very long list of victims is a result of a human condition worse than any virus… greed and indifference!

I’d like to take this time to express my support to all those peacefully protesting the death of George Floyd. Like most, I found the images that have been circulating horrifying. I sat in disbelief as this despicable and heinous crime was committed with such callousness. Violence and racism everywhere needs to stop. As an organization, the PSAC North has always been committed to a shared vision of inclusiveness and respect. We will continue to press the fight and shine the light on violence and racism.
