The Policy
by c. i. downs

RORY GUNN DOESN’T WANT MUCH. He’s just trying to make a living and care for his disabled 5-year-old daughter, Anna. But work is leaving him moody and exhausted. Between cutbacks at Dambar Steel, managers ignoring corporate policy, and Anna not getting any better, tension is mounting for Rory. Something has to give.

When Rory finds himself thrust to the forefront of the labour movement, he’s finally in a position to change things for the better. But he isn’t the only one with something to lose. Confronted with how his decisions affect not just his stability but the stability of everyone around him, Rory settles on the only play he thinks is worth making.

c.i. downs grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba,Canada. After high school he went right into the labour force and took few jobs before spending the majority of his twenties working his way up to being a site-trained machinist. He has an immense love for music, and while he listens to an eclectic variety of it, he considers himself a rock 'n' roller at heart.
