Softworld 98 confrence
Clip 1 - Chretien
When Prime Minister Jean Chretien arrived in St. John's on
September 22 to make a speech at the Softworld 98 conference,
he was greeted by a peaceful -- but extremely vocal -- protest
outside the Delta Hotel.
A large group of federal employees had gathered to protest
the government's decision to appeal the recent Supreme Court
ruling, which made payment equity for public workers mandatory.
