OPSEU's Activists have had an effect on the the ability of the Ontario Liberal Party to raise money.  The Corrections Bargaining Team , Activists and Mobilizers from Region 3 showed up at the Cocktail Reception Fundraiser in support of Wayne Arthurs MPP.  The Liberal Party decided to cancel the event.  A spokesperson who came and explained that they had to cancelled because of scheduling issues with the Hon.  Jim Watson MPP and Wayne Arthurs MPP. They are hoping to reschedule the event for January.

Disappointed by the unwillingness of the MPP to speak to his constituents, the protesters dropped by Mr Arthurs home and spent a productive hour dropping leaflets into mail boxes on his street  and chatting with his neighbours.
