Ontario is aiming to lift all remaining measures, including masking requirements and emergency orders, on March 28, 2022.

This new program will run from Oct. 24 – May 7 and act as an insurance policy so that provinces do not need to fear about individual economic impacts of a lockdown, should one be necessary. This new program is estimated to cost $7.4 billion.

IUOE Canadian Regional Director, Lionel Railton, issued a letter yesterday stating the importance of getting vaccinated

“COVID-19 is a preventable disease. By getting vaccinated, you can help protect yourself and your coworkers from the likelihood of getting sick, being hospitalized, or dying from COVID-19. Vaccination is a matter of workplace health and safety; it helps protect those who are inoculated and limits the chance the virus can spread to others on the job. It is the most proven method for fighting back against COVID-19. There is no other solution to ending this pandemic.”

Former Canadian amateur boxing champion and Local 793-sponsored Mohamed ‘Mighty Mo” Zawadi took to social media to wish Ryan Rozicki good luck in his fight against Oscar Rivas on Friday in Montreal in the first-ever Bridgerweight World Championship.

Zawadi and Rozicki spent time sparring in the ring last week in preparation for Rozicki’s upcoming title fight.

Zawadi, 20, from Barrie, Ont., is a four-time Canadian national amateur champion and the 2019 gold medal winner at the Canada Winter Games in Alberta. He made his professional debut in April 2021, scoring a first-round TKO victory over Olivier Tshitumba.

‘Mighty Mo” is scheduled to get back in the ring for his second pro fight in November.

Zawadi is the son of Local 793 member Mashour (Mark) Zawadi. The Zawadi’s are very much a union family, with Mo’s brother Hussein, uncles Sheher, Mohamed, Abdul, and cousin Alexander, all members of Local 793.
