Canada's two asbestos mines have shut down production and an NDP motion on abestos has revealed cracks in Conservative Party 'unity'

 

Is this the beginning of the end of the asbestos industry in Canada?

OFL Convention

Quote:
Fiery public union leader Sid Ryan has won a second-two year term as president of the Ontario Federation of Labour with a mandate to end internal strife and increase worker militancy on Tuesday.

More than 1,400 delegates at the federation's biennial convention acclaimed Ryan and supported his "unity team" that captured the other two top posts in the umbrella labour group that represents 54 unions and more than one million workers in the province.

Delegates also acclaimed Nancy Hutchison of the United Steelworkers for the secretary-treasurer's job and voted overwhelmingly for Irwin Nanda of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers as executive vice-president.

Why To Occupy? In Favour of the 99%

http://whytooccupy.org/

We designed this site as a go-to for anyone who might care to sample
the many good reasons, valid issues, and eloquent explanations that
are being offered to support the growing OCCUPY movement.

The support comes from a myriad of mortals--economists, actors,
writers, musicians, veterans, scientists, gurus, pundits,
personalities--the list goes on. And will grow. Heck, even the US
Chairman of the Federal Reserve has chimed in with encouragement. Go
figure.

So if anyone tells you this movement is just a bunch of scruffy kids
passing the time--send them here.

Why Occupy?

If your reading this, you’ve heard about Occupy Wall Street

Maybe you’re even super gung-ho about it and embrace the movement with every inch of your being? Maybe you have been watching the live streams coming out of the various occupied cities, maybe you have joined the Facebook groups and have read all the latest related articles and blog posts. Maybe, just maaaaaybe you’ve even bought a t-shirt. If that’s the case, great! Stop reading – go dust off your sleeping bag, make a sign and get down to Square Vic.
