Sudbury Voices Event: Jamie West

See video

On May 8, 2013, the Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op hosted a town hall meeting and community discussion. A panel of six residents of Sudbury who are deeply engaged with questions of what our community is and what it might become kicked off the evening, and lead into a larger conversation among the forty people who attended about what we want and how to get there. Over the next several weeks we will be posting videos of the talks given by the six panellists. This is the 5rd of 6, and shows Jamie West, a health and safety rep for United Steel Workers Local 6500 and more recently the new president of the Sudbury and District Labour Council. He covers a number of topics but particularly talks about the late Homer Seguin, an important figure in the struggle for the health and rights of workers in Sudbury and across the country.

We also want to hear from other residents -- from you, about your vision for change in Sudbury and beyond. We encourage you to write a few paragraphs, to do a video blog, to design an image, or to find some other way to express your answer to the question, "What kind of change would you want to see in your community and world?". Then you can go to, make an account, and post it. If you'd prefer, instead of posting it yourself, you can email it to us at and we can post it for you. Be sure to include your name and a few lines about yourself, and put the words "Sudbury Voices" in the title.

We want to hear your voices, Sudbury!

(Thanks to Billy Bruhmuller for loaning us the equipment and editing the videos.)

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
