VIA Strike

VIA Workers on Strike

VIA Rail workers are officially on strike according to a Union spokesperson; and with their actions this summer is shaping up as one of the messiest tourism seasons in recent history. Let's see, the city and Toronto Tourism spend oodles of dollars to get tourists here only to watch them hurdle over garbage and travel via Greyhound buses. Seems like a memorable trip to me.

Oh, more details on the strike here.
