Minister responsible for the Status of Women on P.E.I., Janice Sherry
Prince Edward Island’s labour minister is marking the labour day long weekend.
Janice Sherry issued a statement saying Prince Edward Island is known for its skilled, hard-working labour force.
“Our traditional industries of farming and fishing have been built on the efforts and industry of countless Island workers. Our emerging industries depend on the reliable, hardworking people who make up the Island workforce,” Sherry said.
“On behalf of the government of Prince Edward Island, I want to thank the women and men of the Island workforce who have helped this province prosper and who have built a better life for all Islanders.”
Labour Day will be marked with a barbecue at Joe Ghiz Park, which will run from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The barbecue is organized by union and labour groups.
