June 9, 2014

TORONTO and NIAGARA, ON, June 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Hundreds of retirees, young workers and students will be hosting a tea party in front of PC leader Tim Hudak'sBeamsville constituency office today, Monday June 9 at 12 noon.

The National Pensioners Federation has organized the rally in protest against Tim Hudak's platform which it says would have disastrous effects on the young and old alike.

"We think he is ignoring the concerns of seniors and young people, so we decided to have a tea party at his office to create an opportunity to let him know," said Herb John, President of the National Pensioners Federation. "He has imported many of his ideas from the Tea Party in the U.S. - that's why a tea party is so appropriate."

"Cuts to public services and public sector jobs will have a huge impact on young people looking for work and seniors who rely on much needed services that have a direct effect on their quality of life," said John.
