Representatives from the General Chairperson’s Association (GCA) which represents all unionized employees at Ontario Northland (ONTC) are calling upon the Liberal Government to cancel or at least suspend the divestment of the ONTC after Premier McGuinty’s sudden resignation.

“With the Premier’s resignation yesterday the GCA is calling upon the Liberal Party to put a stop to the divestment process at Ontario Northland immediately,” said GCA spokesperson Brian Kelly.

“Now that the Legislature has been prorogued and with the outgoing Premier stating that it is time to reach out to the opposition parties to find common ground, we believe a good place for that to start would be for the Liberals to listen to Northerners and heed their calls to stop the sale of Ontario Northland”, added Kelly.

“Cancelling the divestment process will allow all stakeholders of the ONTC time to formulate a business plan that will not only reinvigorate the organization but allow it to stay in public hands”, concluded Kelly.
