Canadian Press: Ontario group calls for minimum wage to be raised to $14 an hour from $10.25

TORONTO - A mock $10 bill — frozen in a block of ice — was presented to a representative Ontario's Ministry of Labour on Thursday afternoon in protest of the government's minimum wage freeze.

The protest was organized by The Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage, a coalition of several advocacy groups in Ontario.

Members of the group include Ontario ACORN, Worker's Action Centre, and Ontario Coalition Against Poverty.
