Our newspaper committee had an issue ready to print mid-March. Then, the pandemic hit and our local's entire attention shifted to pressuring CPC into making sure our members had sufficient safety measures in place. Instead of just scrapping the issue as its content became less relevant, we felt it important to at least release it in a digital form so our members could still read about the March local election results, as well as see pictures of the tremendous day of solidarity we had on March 5th to support Calgary in their fight against SSD. Most importantly, our local had big plans to expand our workfloor organizing strategy by holding training sessions in other locals; unsurprisingly, all of those dates had to be postponed due to C19. Our endeavors are on hold for now, and we’re eager to get back to regular workfloor meetings and our original organizing project once it’s safe to do so.
