Calm the crap down

The TTC is now on strike. Feel free to complain about the situation we have found ourselves in. However, everyone who is taking this as an open-ended opportunity to bash people who belong to unions need to calm the crap down. Comments like "If they have no respect for the public, we should have no respect from them. Deunionize the bastards" aren't helpful. You may not agree with their methods, but remember that ATU 113 members are just trying to do what's best for their families.

I'm going to turn off the TV now, as some of the callers on CP24 are ridiculous. Lady! Museum station was paid for through the capital budget! Salaries are paid from the operating budget! The law says you can't transfer money between those two accounts!

As soon as their "Worth A Million" campaign came out, I knew we were all in for some tough times.

I was planning to visit friends and do shopping in Toronto on Monday, but now my money will not be spent.

Louroz Mercader, a Mississauga-based activist (and universally cool guy) has informed me that the province has already moved to have back-to-work legislation in force for monday morning (assuming no hiccups).

But even if its back, I wouldn't blame you for keeping your wallet closed out of protest. This is a dark day - we can all agree to that.
