Brothers and Sisters of PSAC, we want to thank all of the Public Servants for all you do. Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) members are all part of a safety network for the Canadian people. All of our jobs are connected in some way to the safety and security of the citizens of this country. Lightkeepers are only one of the many faces of that service, but right now we are the one on the block.
On both coasts, and across Canada, the public is in an uproar over the potential loss of the services of lightkeepers. They understand that this is the outpost, the beacon of the their society’s framework of social good. They understand that the abilities of humans cannot be replaced by machines. They understand that investment in the safety of a society pays off. They want to stop the dismantling. We owe it to them, and each other, to help. We cannot allow the government to pick apart public service bit by bit. This is our line in the sand. Let’s push back.
In solidarity, Lightkeepers of BC, Steve Bergh – President, Alice Woods – Vice President, BC Lightkeepers Local 20232 PSAC
