RoseMary Peddie claps to encourage passing motorists to honk Saturday in support of an immediate increase in Ontario’s minimum wage to $14 an hour. About 15 people turned out for the 1 p.m. demonstration at the corner of Edinburgh and Stone roads, which was part of a provincewide day of action on the minimum wage. The campaign to raise the minimum wage to $14 an hour has been endorsed by a wide range of anti-poverty, low-wage worker organizations and labour unions, a news release said. Premier Kathleen Wynne is raising Ontario’s minimum wage to $11 an hour on June 1, after a four-year freeze. James Gordon, the NDP candidate in Guelph in the next provincial election, was at Saturday’s protest.
