ACTRA Re-Elects Richard Hardacre

Toronto – The governing National Council of ACTRA has re-elected Richard Hardacre as National President for another term. Hardacre is Past President of ACTRA Toronto and has been a member of ACTRA’s National Council for 11 years. Hardacre shepherded the 21,000-strong ACTRA membership through its first strike, which lasted six weeks beginning in early January, 2007.

Commenting on his re-election Hardacre said, “The Canadian performers of ACTRA participated in a major victory this year through our negotiations, and the first strike in our 64-year history. It was our only choice to protect our future earnings in new media, those to which we and our families have a right. We are duly proud of the Canadian industry and our place in it. So, it’s now time to put this union’s determination into restoring conditions for Canadian production, particularly dramatic content for television and film. This essential work reflects the culture of our peoples.”

Speaking today on Hardacre’s re-election, one of Canada’s leading actors Wendy Crewson said, “I am thrilled to hear of Richard’s re-election. ACTRA’s leadership through the strike showed vision and courage and we have emerged with new strength and confidence. Richard is a strong advocate not only for the membership, but for the industry as well. I have tremendous confidence in his leadership. We all benefit enormously from his compassion and continued dedication to our union.”

“I am honoured to be re-elected to a second term and to continue leading our members in our industry’s pursuit of real change in the attitudes of our broadcasters, regulatory bodies, and our government. Our performers have a genuine commitment to building Canada’s unique culture," added Hardacre.

Hardacre participated in four rounds of IPA bargaining and was one of the authors of ACTRA’s groundbreaking rights for children in film. He trained for the stage at Canada’s National Theatre School in Montreal and later at the HB Studio in New York. He has been a member of ACTRA and Canadian and American Actor’s Equity since 1976.
