Pinheads and Patriots: North of the Border Edition

Starting this time on the Pinhead front...

PINHEADS: TTC Workers' Union
This past week the Toronto Transit Commission, upon which 1.5 million commuters rely every day to get to work, school and other important places was shut down by a workers' union strike after talks at the bargaining table broke down. The TTC employs about 10000 workers, many of whom make up to $26 per hour, plus they receive exceptionally good benefits and pensions. But apparently it wasn't enough for about 90% of the union who voted to walk out on Torontonians, most of whom make no where NEAR the amount these tax-payer-funded gluttons do, and live without the job security provided by unions. The strike ended after less than one day after the Ontario government passed legislation forcing the swines back to work. For their selfish and childish behaviour, the TTC workers and their enablers are pinheads.

PATRIOTS: The Ontario Legislature
Far be it from me to often praise the McGuinty government or any of their opponents in the wasteful, frustratingly unproductive and dishonest Ontario legislature, but this week even the far left New Democratic Party took a stand for the majority and ordered the spoiled TTC workers back on the job. For their swift and decisive assistance for Toronto, Dalton McGuinty and the Ontario MMPs are patriots.
