Breaking: Transport Workers Union President Roger Toussaint was sentenced to 10 days in jail and a $1,000 fine for ignoring a judge's order and calling a strike that crippled the city for three, cold days.
You know what? I hope they make him walk his ass to jail.
The TWU still faces $3,000,000 in fines. A TWU lawyer noted "The union is currently in a negative cash position".
Will someone please grab me a tissue, I may cry? The union went on strike in the middle of the Christmas shopping season, costing city merchants untold millions; you can mark me down as unsympathetic to the union's financial woes.
