Another federal union has challenged provisions in the wicked-awesome Harpercon budget that “[take] away collective bargaining in the public service and pay equity as a human right for federal workers”–a budget that, it should be noted, passed with (probationary!) support from Iggy and the Tory-lites (who haven’t exactly been hawk-like in their fiscal vigilance since).
As pogge (h/t) observes:
We seem to be moving closer to the American system despite ourselves. Bad legislation sails through without sufficient opposition and the real fight happens in the courts.
Yep. Democracy in Canada is dying from the inside out. There is no meaningful opposition in Parliament, much less leadership from the government–there’s Blue and Blue Light.
Drink up and drown, kiddies.
