Dias and Unifor had previously been involved in the federal election campaign, launching an anti-Conservative campaign despite the fact that Justin Trudeau’s policies have had a devastating impact on many Canadian workers.
Unifor’s campaign also caused serious concerns about media bias, as thousands of reporters work for Unifor, and most of those reporters failed to disavow Unifor’s anti-Conservative campaign.
