I went and read that article and I'm furious. Transit workers, hospital workers, police and firemen should all be prohibited from striking. They work for the collective, not the other way around.

That the most contentious issue is that 106 janitorial workers are to be shifted from day to night shift makes it even more unbelievable. Cry me a fuckin river but don't go shutting down the city. That is so fucked up. I feel your pain. (I tend to be pro union but this is ridiculous!)

I was feeling bad for the drivers lately with the abuse they have to put up with - spitting, punching, etc.

No more.

It's effing ridiculous. I heard a story today about a woman who'd been waiting 6 months for an appointment with a heart specialist. Guess what day the appointment was. Guess who couldn't find a way to get there. Disgusting.

I saw one of those masks at the Army Navy store in downtown over the weekend. I was all, "you must be kidding." Apparently, Canada was not.

Well Butchie, it could be that summer is approaching and despite what Dum Dum says, global warming.
