Hudak wants to get rid of the Rand formula, the “historic compromise” on union security that has governed labour relations in Ontario (and most of Canada) since the 1940′s.
Even disgraced former premier Mike Harris didn’t dare go this far.
Hudak uses the language of “modernizing” Ontario labour law. Of course that’s only if moving worker rights back to where they were in the Dirty Thirties is your definition of “modern”.
It would be very easy to write Hudak off as a right wingnut.
Right-wing extremists have lately got into the habit of getting elected through campaigns of lies, half truths and robocalls. Take Toronto Mayor Rob Ford for example. Someone please take him!
Then there’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who’s on a global crusade to make the world safe for multinational corporations.
Take Hudak very seriously. But do take him on.
