WHERE: Rallying point at Dorchester Square (on Metcalfe north of René-Lévesque Blvd.)
WHEN: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 11:00 a.m. ET

NAFTA continues to erode the rights of working men and women in North America. Good jobs are on the chopping block in the NAFTA renegotiations while the U.S. has launched unfair attacks on the aerospace, forestry and pulp and paper, automobile, aluminum and several other sectors.
