SUDBURY, Ont. – Fred Hahn, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario, will join Nickel Belt MPP France Gélinas, Sudbury NDP candidate Paul Loewenberg and others on Wednesday at a BBQ and march to city council to protest the public/private partnership proposal for the new biosolids plant.

Sudbury city council will soon vote on whether to hand millions of taxpayer dollars to private companies to build a sludge treatment plant. CUPE has joined others in the community in opposing the public-private partnership as it reduces local control and brings with it substantial risks for taxpayers and the environment.

The BBQ will begin in the Steelworkers Hall parking lot on Brady Street in Sudbury at 3:30 p.m., followed by a march.

Following his presentation, Hahn will be available for media interviews.
