A union representing tens of thousands of Ontario health care workers says it is exploring all legal options after two nurses were injured while protesting outside the venue of the provincial leaders' debate in midtown Toronto on Monday.

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare said in a news release Thursday that it retained Ruby Shiller Enenajor DiGiuseppe (RSED) LLP to look into what possible legal avenues it can pursue for the incident.

"When women and men on the frontline of care are injured at a peaceful protest, we really need to ask ourselves what is happening to our province. SEIU Healthcare will always defend the rights of our members," union president Sharleen Stewart said in a statement.
