We'll just have to disagree on this, Makwa. My post, of which you complain, was one of respect and celebration of emancipation from slavery. You misinterpreted it as this:
... the implication, (as many ultra-right figures are fond of making), that African American people have benefitted by their enslavement is revolting,...
On topic, you said:
I don't see how asking if a transit labour stoppage causes, "an immediate and serious danger to the health or safety of the public" is inherently anti-labour...
Really? Had you followed this discussion from the start, or just the news, you would know that it was Harper's Labour Minister Rona Ambrose who used a rare provision of the Code to ask the Canada Industrial Relations Board this precise question. When the CIRB answered (obviously): "Of course not, there's no immediate and serious danger to the health or safety of the public", she then said fine, then we'll have to legislate these people back to work. That never came to pass, because an agreement was reached.
So, maybe the "question" Rona Ambrose asked wasn't "inherently anti-labour". But the question was ANSWERED, and the answer was NO.
For babblers to raise that very same question afterwards, in the Labour forum, for the sole purpose of restricting workers' rights (under the transparent signboard of "essential services"), is enough to make one gag. The fucking law says the busdrivers' right to strike is unrestricted, and our so-called progressives here do not.
Our moderators apparently believe that such a discussion is healthy and appropriate, because they don't think the "Left" (LOL) is united on whether workers have the right to strike. Well, then, let the discussion continue.
