Poor, helpless York.

I have no real interest in responding to York's latest bullshit, nor the Toronto Star's laughable anti-union rhetorical flailing. Suffice to say, they're at it again, and no amount of appeals to facts and reason will change their minds about anything. It may be that, once the ratification vote fails -- as I expect it will, although possibly narrowly -- CUPE 3903 might want to seriously think about binding arbitration. There's no real will to resolve this on the other side, and the public is so appalling ignorant and, frankly, stupid that genuinely fair negotiations seem impossible.

It's a terrible option, but back to work legislation is far worse, and I'm still not sure how long McGuinty will want to hold off setting a viciously illiberal precedent.
