Transit strike: One year ago today

It was one year ago today that the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279 went on strike after talks broke off with the City of Ottawa during contract negotiations.

The Ottawa Citizen took a look back on the events leading up to, during, and in the aftermath of the strike.

Thank goodness we don't have to live through it again this winter.

That was a very biased piece. What a surprise that Cullen seem's to have started campaigning.

Thankfully this blog has been a great resource.

@Dean: Hahahaha, I was surprised (and yet not surprised) to see that Cullen has started campaigning already. Then again, Jim Watson has been campaigning for a few months now, too.

My but this blog is awfully quiet with so much transity stuff going on.

Well, I'm grateful to have not endured a repeat of that event, however quiet this blog's become.
