And the Fast Ferries are supposed to be the biggest transportation debacle in B.C. history why?
Today is the debut of Canada's very own No Fly List at airports across the country.
- Fair market housing for aboriginal people,
- Leasing retail space to service the exploding population in the UBC area (and at the same time curtailing commercial development on campus)
- Ceding a right-of-way to the UBC, the largest commuter destination in the Lower Mainland, making it that much easier to finally build mass transit to campus
As for the gold card-flashing, SUV-driving, Mike Weir wannabe suckholes in Point Grey: if they don't like it, let 'em vote NDP and book a tee time at the Stanley Park Pitch n' Putt.
When workers aren't being paid overtime, or being underpaid, or being subjected to unsafe working conditions and/or harassment, we don't cry to a lawyer or run to the courts. We organize, damnit! While a bank may not be the most ideologically predisposed environment to pass around the union cards, it hasn't stopped workers at credit unions or the Alberta Treasury Branch. The bank can tie up a lawsuit in court as long as they want, but they can't screw around with their own workers once their union allies start talking about moving their formidable pension funds.
However, if Ms. Fresco and her colleagues think they're somehow 'better' than forming a union, they should try to remember where laws concerning overtime, pensions, safe working conditions, vacations, and everything else that makes our working lives bearable came from. Power yields nothing without a demand, it never has and it never will.
