Legal Aid Day of Action rally in Owen Sound Tuesday

A Day of Action rally is planned for noon Tuesday in front of Owen Sound City Hall.

Staff from the Grey-Bruce Community Legal Clinic will stage a Pop-Up Clinic. It’s to promote the fact that the clinic survived the first round of provincial government cuts with its services intact.

But the clinic is concerned that by next March, deeper cuts to the system are planned.Clinics in other communities are already being forced to reduce their services. Changes have also been proposed that may see legal aid clinics eliminated altogether.

Concerned residents are invited to gather in front of Owen Sound City Hall at noon on Tuesday to show support for legal aid.

The Grey-Bruce Community Legal Clinic provides free legal services to low income individuals and families in Grey and Bruce counties.
