The garbage men are on strike. 12 hours into the strike people started illegally dumping garbage when they couldn’t possibly have had time to be inconvenienced yet. All the media reports are outrageously dramatic and the anti-union rhetoric exploded, demonstrating the people of Toronto’s continued hatred of any attempts to stand up to their employers.
Because of this I was purposefully avoiding reading anything newspaper stories in order to keep my anger (at the anti-unionists and garbage-dumping morons) in check. But somehow I stumbled upon two articles. One is from the Globe and Mail and one is from the Toronto Star. Two papers, one city…. or is it? The extreme differences astonish me.
