In October 2019, the Confederation of Canadian Unions (CCU) held its 50th Anniversary Convention in Ottawa.
Ontario NDP Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Joel Harden spoke to the CCU about voter organizing and democratic participation, and how unions can fight anti-labour propaganda in the corporate media. Joel also answered questions about workers’ rights, proportional representation, public education and a guaranteed annual income.
Harden earned his undergraduate degree in sociology and political studies at Queen’s University and his masters and doctorate in political science at York University. He has been the MPP for Ottawa Centre since being elected in the 2018 Ontario provincial election. For more information, go to joelharden.ca.
