More than 20 UFCW Canada activists, staff and members from across Canada recently showed their Pride by marching in the 2011 Montreal Pride Parade. Included in the delegation were UFCW Canada National President Wayne Hanley; Executive Assistant to the National President Louis Bolduc; UFCW Canada Local Union 500 President Tony Filato; Local Union 503 President Steeve Bégin; Director of Human Rights Naveen Mehta, as well as other members of the UFCW Canada National Council Human Rights, Equity and Diversity Committee.
National President Wayne Hanley says fundraising allegations filed by the Conservative Party of Canada against the NDP just before Labour Day were "a groundless, strategic assault on the labour movement, and on ordinary Canadians who are fed up with the vicious, partisan politics the Harper Conservatives are so proud of."
