Lynn Jones on Voting Against the Charlottetown Constitutional Accord

Long-time, Halifax-based community, anti-racist, and labour activist Lynn Jones was the first woman of colour to serve as a Vice President of the Canadian Labour Congress. In this five-minute audio clip, Jones talks about the courage it took, in her first meeting in that position, to be the only member of the CLC executive to vote against labour’s endorsement of the 1992 Charlottetown Constitutional Accord, which was later defeated in a country-wide referendum.
