The Prince Rupert Labour Council will be hosting an online Community Roundtable this Thursday,  seeking to hear from front line workers in the community to explore a range of themes that have been noted for the exchange of ideas.

Now is an urgent time to hear everyone's voices and to make sure that the most vulnerable are prioritized in this time of need." -- forum organizer Tom Kertes, Secretary-Treasurer of the Prince Rupert Labour Council and member of the Prince Rupert District Teachers' Union (PRDTU)
