Be careful what you wish for

Hmmm ... in spite of the highly touted muscle of a Conservative majority government, maybe locking out the postal workers and then expecting them to be quickly legislated back to work wasn't such a great idea after all.
Back in the "bad old days" when those awful Liberals were the Opposition, chances are Harper would have quickly convinced several dozen liberal MPs to help him grease the passage of a business-friendly bill.
But legislative realities in Canada have obviously changed with the election of a unified 100-strong NDP opposition, which can and will sustain a filibuster over an issue of principle.
