I try to support unions, but really! 

Surprise transit strike hits Toronto:
Thousands of people headed to work or planning other trips were forced to walk, call cabs or scramble to find other ways to get around after the 9,000 members of the Amalgamated Transit Union walked out at midnight, just hours after rejecting a tentative contract proposal Friday night.
And then the union leadership blames the public for this wildcat walkout:
Union leader Bob Kinnear said he had no choice but to set aside a promise to give 48 hours notice of a walkout out of concern for the safety of his members given some "irrational members of the public."
If he thinks the Toronto retail workers and shoppers who were stranded this morning hated the transit workers before, just wait until he sees what they'll be dealing with after they go back to work.
