Martin Sheen joins Royal York strike


Martin Sheen joined the picket line outside the Royal York Hotel this morning for some reason.

Probably bored before the TIFF premiere of his son's movie, Sheen sported a sign reading "On strike for justice Unite Here," whilst banging drums and chanting along with the 30 or so protesters. "I've been a union member all my adult life," Sheen told the Toronto Star. "I've been involved in labour struggles all my adult life and I support it."

"It," in case Sheen just picked up a sign without knowing details of the strike (he wouldn't!), is a fight for better shift hours and fewer cutbacks. Workers walked off the job this morning.
