    Lana my dear it was the Union who helped create this mess in the first place. No concessions no talks nothing and now no mill. AB wanted to make cuts in an effort to save the mill but the union said NO we want everything. Now they have nothing. Look in the mirror Gary Healey theres the problem YOU.

    I have to agree completely with you this week, Lana. It shouldn't be the government's responsibility to constantly pick clean up the human detritus of late-capitalism's failures; the government should be regulating these operations so that workers are considered more than just an item in the accounting cycle to be whiddled down and out-sourced. Unfortunately, the vast majority of workers are not protected by any collective agreements and the labour movement needs to start protecting more workers rights, not just those who are unionized. We need to (as a collective) start looking at Scandanavian models that see government, labour AND business acknowledging their common interests in keeping society functioning and the populace happy. Unfortunately the cards are stacked heavily against workers in North America with governments largely on the business side applauding the 'efficiencies' that have largely been borne out of workers' losses.
