JUST WHAT WE NEED, A TRANSIT STRIKE IN TORONTO

Wonderful eh? The union rejected the latest offer from the management and now we're all set to have a big freaking transit strike. Every bus, train and subway line in the city will be out of commission on Monday.

Why can't this union make a deal? Instead they want to hose the customers and hold the entire City of Toronto hostage. Keep in mind TTC fares already went up this year, again, to $2.50. And these guys are getting a raise, and yet they still want more.

So guess who gets left holding the bag? The customers. That's who. I want to see back to work legislation if these people are serious about this strike. It could be a big negotiating ploy for all I know. But I have a feeling these union people have spent a little bit too much time studying the negotiating tactics of Gary Bettman and Bob Goodenow.

This city is going to be IMPOSSIBLE to get around Monday, you're better off using your feet.
