Sudbury Daystarter: Everything you need to start your Monday

News, weather and road information to start your day.
  • UNWANTED REMARKS: A woman from Sudbury says street harassment is a major problem in the city. The term street harassment describes unwanted words or attention from a stranger in a public place, and can range from leering and catcalling to assault. She's started an online map so people can track where they have been harassed.
  • LABOUR CHANGES: The 18 employees who work for Eastlink in Sudbury, Timmins, and two other locations want to unionize, joining some of their co-workers who are already members of the Unifor union.
  • GROWING ACCEPTANCE: A group of people who live in low-income housing in Sudbury want to change how they're perceived by the public. They plan to do that by creating a series of community gardens. Hear their story at 7:10 a.m. on Morning North.
  • SUMMER SLANG: Camp vs. cottage - it seems to be the age-old debate of northern Ontario summers. More and more when describing a waterfront home, "cottage" is replacing "camp."
