Sting Production To Support Auto Workers

Musician Sting and the Toronto cast of "The Last Ship" have agreed to perform a free show at Oshawa's Tribute Communities Centre on Thursday in support of those affected by the planned shutdown of the city's General Motors plant. The former lead vocalist for The Police stars in the production as a protest leader fighting to hold the community together by building one last ship. Sting says he wrote the music and lyrics based on his own experiences growing up in an English shipbuilding town affected by the collapse of it's main industry. Unifor members in Durham Region and the GTA will receive priority access to Thursday's show before they are made available to the general public.
