Music legend Sting took his Toronto stage performance "The Last Ship" to Oshawa last night; the acoustic performance was offered free of charge to thousands of General Motors workers affected by the plant's pending closure. The production was written by Sting based on his experiences growing up in a shipbuilding town affected by the collapse of it's main industry. He performed songs by his band The Police including "Message in a Bottle" and "Every Breath You Take." Sting said the issues affecting the GM plant can't be buried under the political carpet, and he urged Canadians to get behind the workers. Unifor President Jerry Dias said he believes there's no question the message got GM's attention.
