Invitation to participate in press conference about Ontario College of Trades, April 8th
If you have strong opinions about the Ontario College of Trades, we want to hear from you.
By Steve Payne
There is a new wave of contractor anger at the recent actions of the Ontario College of Trades (OCOT), especially its move to declare carpentry a “compulsory” trade.
Garfield Dunlop, a licensed plumber and the Skilled Trades & Apprenticeships Critic for the Ontario PC party, has been opposing the OCOT vociferously for the past year. He wants the OCOT to be abolished.
Dunlop will hold a Press Conference at Queen’s Park on April 8th, 9.30 am, in which he will detail the latest reasons why the OCOT needs to become an election issue.
Dunlop has asked Canadian Contractor to invite contractors in the province who have strong opinions about the OCOT to contact us, to see if you would be willing to participate in the press conference in some capacity. Please email our publisher, Rob Koci, at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would be willing to consider participation. All attendees at the press conference will require pre-accreditation through Garfield Dunlop’s office, which Rob can arrange.
