Ambrose steers clear of involvement in strike

It seems federal labour minister Rona Ambrose is reluctant to take any direct action in the current transit strike. Her quotation in the Ottawa Citizen is a pretty safe sound byte. It takes neither side and is actually quite benign. Of course, circumstances can always change and Ambrose can always reverse course.

Here is what she said:
"It's the responsibility and the obligation of both these parties to get back to the table and come up with a negotiated settlement as quickly as possible,” she said. “That's in the best interests of the citizens of Ottawa, and it's in (the city and union) hands to solve.”
