you should be in politics. your post that i responded to was clearly about illegal strikes and that the right to protest was over and above the responsibility to work.
and the document you posted says nothing on the subject.
i am angry about the result of the mayoral election in vancouver. i think i will skip work tommorow and protest. FREEDOM!
Call it what you want, Politcal Protest, Illegal Strike, Strike, Protest March, etc… Somtimes, even a Democaratically Elected Govn't loses sight of the fact that its power is not absolute. Somtimes some laws are just plain wrong. Wrong, ie. No Vote for Women, Blacks on the back of the Bus, Interracial marriage, Homosexuality, Aparthied, KKK, Head Taxes, Residential Schools, and on and on and on.
Whats 'The responsibility to work' mean to you? How many abuses and injustices would you personally put up with in your work place before you approached such agencies as The Employment Standards Branch for help in determining your rights as an employee. The Responsibility to work to the best of our ability is equal to our employers responsibilty to follow Canadian Labour Law.
Somtimes, political protest and strikes can become inter-related. It doesn't make alot of difference what you call it somtimes you just have to do it. Being tired and or lazy doesn't count.
Until you've lived through an education system working against you, you really don't have any say in the subject. Teachers made a difference in my life, they got me through school even though the odds and govn't funding were stacked against me, they went out on strike for the students that need that funding and support to get through school. I hope teachers and everyone will continue to call the govn't on their faults in providing education, health care, and legal aid for everyone as the duty of Govn't is to provide these things for all Canadians, govn't making a profit is secondary to the things that every Canadian Rightfully Deserves.
Do you vote?
