B.C. inmates attempt to form first prison labour union in Canada - The Globe and Mail

EXCUSE ME??? This too could be another sign of the approaching abyss. Folks, there's being progressive. There's being enlightened. And then there's being STUPID!!! If this is allowed, it will rank as one Canada's greatest 'D'Oh' (Homer Simpson) moment in recent memory. Anyone interested in laying down a bet as to whether or not our equally progressive and enlightened courts is going to rule on this one (because you know that eventually the SCC will probably have to rule on the case).

  1. This is in my back yard, so you know I'm watching this very, very closely! And like you, I'm finding it hard to believe that anyone took the opening bid to form a union seriously! But I try not to underestimate the power of human stupidity...

    What are they gonna do with it if they get it? Strike for higher wages? Better working conditions? More benefits? More vacation time? Can't wait to see that picket line when they're all under lockdown. And just how do they propose to collect dues?

    And then there's gonna be the issue of prisoners who don't want to join a union. Can't wait for the first lawsuit over that, too...
