Editorial: Shame on Redford


New union laws violate basic rights









Needless to say, making it illegal to just talk about striking is the kind of law one might expect in some banana republic or other oppressive totalitarian state.


Every opposition party opposes this legislation, but their voices could scarcely be heard on the issue as Redford limited debate on the legislation in the legislature.


“The Wildrose believes strongly in respecting the rule of law and upholding contracts including collective bargaining agreements,” Wildrose House Leader and Finance Critic Rob Anderson said in a written statement.


“Negotiating a collective bargaining agreement that is fair for taxpayers is an important goal; however, it does not give the government the right to terminate the legal arbitration rights of public sector employees.”


Exactly. Redford, who is a human rights lawyer, has clearly discarded what she learned when she helped Nelson Mandela work through changing the laws of post-Apartheid South Africa after he became that country’s first black president. That these bills passed third reading just one day before Mandela passed away on Thursday is both ironic and coincidental. It’s reasonable to assume that Mandela would be appalled by these laws that strip workers of their rights.


As Gil McGowan, president of the Alberta Federation of Labour, wrote in a column that ran in the Herald on Wednesday, “given the fact that there have only been four or five illegal strikes in Alberta over the past two decades, it’s hard to see a need for this kind of legislation.”


That Premier Redford actually has the gall to claim that among unionized workers “there’s an appreciation for what we’re trying to do,” is laughable.


Nobody believes that and no one can believe that a so-called human rights lawyer would allow such an abomination to the most fundamental right of any free and democratic

The title of the thread is clearly implying that editorial boards of media outlets in Alberta are turning against Conservative politicians...

There is no one else that the media can target in AB... The combined opposition parties hold but a handful of seats

Don't get me wrong, as sitting PM Harper is where the buck stops....for grievance against governmental policies and decisions, he sits in the big chair, he should be taking the hits. But there's enough to legitimately gripe about with assuming anything more.

Actually, the Wildrose did take a good chunk of seats from the Cons. When I responded earlier I had the Libs and NDP in mind.

Doesn't matter too much anyways, Wildrose is a more extreme version of the Cons anyways

Martha Stewart is no good - she's already done time and is basically damaged goods.

... Now Justin, well - he would be a big hit in cell block 4.... Time to really extrapolate just for fun

Bottom line is, it's all the same thing. Conclusion preceeding information.

No this is not about Harper and it is about Reford changing course and denying
democracy for workers. This law needs to be challenged. Remember when
Gordon Campbell did his nasty deed in BC and it too was struck down.
I would hate to see Wildrose win the next election their positions on things is far
worse than the current government. I wouldn't expect anything different from
Alberta though. Everyone else is heading to a more left of center approach as the
current government has made Canadians restless. Alberta will buck the trend
likely.

Well, the hair and the makeup was obviously from her. And now apparently the ethics lessons. I think we have a winner frankly.

I've been saying it for years. Doing that much decoupage is not a good thing. And now the madness is spreading.
