Anti-Poverty Activists To Protest Stratford Opening

Protesters are planning to demonstrate at the opening of this year’s Stratford Festival. “The protesters are demanding the Ontario government raise welfare rates by 40 per cent. The groups have said they are targetting Stratford’s black tie event because the opening night gala usually draws both prominent government officials and business and community leaders, ‘a Who’s Who of the rich and vile,’ says a notice on the OCAP website.”
