...Sid Ryan is upset:
Union disclosure Bill C-377 angers Ontario Federation of Labour
Bill C-377 forces unions to disclose expenditures
"Sid Ryan, president of the Ontario Federation of Labour, which
represents 54 unions, says his organization will redouble efforts to
make sure Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives don't win
October's federal election.
The federation's leader is upset with the passing of Bill C-377, the
Conservatives' controversial private member's bill that forces labour
unions to publicly disclose how they spend their money.
The bill, sponsored by Conservative MP Russ Hiebert and backed
strongly by the Prime Minister's Office, gained Senate approval Tuesday
and requires unions to publicly disclose any spending of $5,000 or more
and any salary of more than $100,000.
Unions will have to provide that information to the Canada Revenue
Agency, which would publicly post the information to its website."
A stubble jumper is a prairie farmer. I'm from Saskatchewan and my dad was a farmer, so the name is apt. "Redneck" needs no explanation. It's anyone who disagrees with a lunatic leftie. My blog is mostly about the Middle East but other issues also catch my eye and get me going. I monitor comments to keep out trolls and lunatic lefties. Anyone who is zealously anti-American and anti-democracy in the Middle East is NOT welcome.
