Union could learn meaning of true solidarity

Buzz Hargrove is mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore. Is the head of the Canadian Auto Workers' Union pissed at the Conservative government for selling out Canadian workers in global trade talks? Or for cutting millions of dollars from the Court Challenges program and Status Of Women Canada? Or for axing what promised to be Canada's first attempt at creating a universal child care program?

No, you guessed wrong. Buzz is mad at those pesky environmentalists for daring to suggest that climate change is enough of a threat that people should think twice before using their gas-guzzling SUVs to drive to the corner store.

You can read more of my rant against Buzz and other observations about the true nature of "solidarity" here.
