Letter To Deborah Bourque On The Shut Down Of The Breton Forum
Below is what I found on the "CUPW Breton Website".
"Due to pending disciplinary action initiated against me, I must resign my position as webmaster of Breton Local's Website. The site will be offline until these accusations can be resolved."
Robert A. Chant.
The Breton Forum is the only democratic forum run by a CUPW organization. I was very upset by its removal. I wrote National CUPW President, Deborah Bourque, on this issue.
"I was very upset to find the Breton Website shut down.
Robert Chant’s forum has been a blessing to both sides of the debate, especially, the “Yes Side”.
At Gateway, the only bulletins that appear are those that favour the “No Position”. Bulletins by Philippe Arbour, Denis Lemelin and even a shop steward’s bulletin from Hamilton were posted at Gateway.
The “No People” seem to be intolerant of any “yes posting” because a bulletin from the regional office was removed last week. This isn’t fair debate. This is fascism.
CUPW has reputation of promoting fair democratic debates.The “No Side” only wants its voice heard.
There are rules for fair debates and they should be enforced.
I’ll make sure your recent bulletin: “Ten Reasons To Vote Yes” is distributed at Gateway on Monday."
Support the Breton Local and a fair debate. Contact the National CUPW Office.
