Public Service Alliance of Canada takes on Trudeau and the Liberals

Brian LilleyArchive

A year ago, Canada’s labour movement was completely in love with Justin Trudeau but now one of the biggest unions, the Public Service Alliance of Canada, has launched a comprehensive campaign against him claiming he hasn’t done enough. 

Their criticism is that he’s changed the tone but not the substance — in other words Trudeau talks a lot but doesn’t deliver. That sounds familiar.

PSAC’s contract is up which means he’s about to find out what it’s like to be on the receiving end of union vitriol, just like Stephen Harper was for a decade.

And it’s not just unions that are unhappy with Trudeau one year in, but business groups as well.

This is a government that is disappointing special interests on all fronts but thanks to the media party’s still vibrant love affair with Trudeau, he continues to ride high in the polls.

I am having some toungue removed on this coming Friday, due to a small cancer. My biggest fear is I will sound like the "Bullshit Lisperer!

Would one expect better from Baby Doc Trudeau?

He is dividing the nation. Just like Papa Doc did.

He is robbing us blind with his non-tax carbon tax while the oil patch suffers. Similar to what Papa Doc did..

He is giving away billions of our tax dollars to other nations. Just like Papa Doc did.

He worries more about how others think of Canada rather than working for Canadians. Just like Papa Doc did.

He is blowing money left and right putting us into deeper debt. Just like Papa Doc did.

He is becoming big buds with the scum of the world. Just like Papa Doc did.

He talks big about human rights, but loves China and Cuba. Just like Papa Doc did.

He doesn’t care about the bread basket provinces or the oil patch. Just like Papa Doc did.

The main stream media love him for giving taxpayers the finger. Just like Papa Doc did.

I don’t believe he’s done anything useful for Canada yet!

The rebel should start some paperwork to see how much interest there is for separation in the west

Seems to be an instant replay of what happened in Ontario under scumbag Wynne

Al Peterson great analogy, Justin sent them an email right after he got elected promising to not touch the sick days as evil Harper had cut them down a bit, now he is cutting them more. Anyone who trusts these corrupt pigs is truly an idiot.

What a shock! He didn’t keep his word! And they trusted him! STBY. The sad thing is that, as always, these lefty fools have learned nothing. Lefties never learn from their mistakes, they never learn from other people’s mistakes and they refuse to exercise discernment. Just like Good Old Charlie Brown kicking the football that Lucy holds.

Justine should be hung for treason . Alberta should separate . That’s the cold hard truth .

He’ll fill his promises to the unions the same way he did to seniors and their pensons.

Although i can see the need for the government to take action like this if serious and troubling circumstances arose, this is not the case here. This is the act of a dictator. Justin is doing this to cover his own ass , and to avoid his ignorance and lies playing a part in no EI and pension payments going out to people. I sure hope some of those union brass kept good records of their dealings with the liberal party. If they did not learn from what Chretin did to his partners in adscam they are pretty stupid.

Lawrence O Byrne in some cases that is true, trade unions in Quebec are not exactly any different. But they all should be scared , Justin did this to stop a strike vote that would have made him look like a shmuck. It makes me wonder if he intends to take over all unions , not just this one. It is a scary thought and action like this should have been done only under very serious circumstances, not to avert a strike to save face.

John, Charles and Keith he has fired the people who ran the union and put it into trusteeship, he screwed them as thanks for helping him. And the largest offer was cutting sick days that Justin promised not to touch and a whopping 0.5% increase in wages. There was no greed on the union side this time.
In one way it is almost Karma since they were dumb enough to support a liberal and expect to not be screwed over if the right situation arose.

The only thing this little puke is delivering is the TOTAL COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY!!!!! trudeau for TREASON!!!!

The other thing about the Soviet Socialists, who inherited the tactics of the National Socialists, is control of the media in post war Eastern Europe. Sort of like the MSM working for the “Party”.

i wish you union haters would please state that these are public service unions living off the tax payer dime and have nothing to do with private sector unions who have to actually produce and the company has to be profitable . they are as different as night and day .
commented 2016-10-18 20:51:14 -0400
Maybe the Public Service Alliance will discover it is not as independent of the “Party” as they thought, similar to the Socialist takeover of Eastern European unions post 1945. At least the Liberal Party of Corruption does not have a Gulag, just healthy golden handshakes to get rid of troublesome public union bosses.

Charles – you nailed it, couldn’t have said it better. This country is diving straight down into hell with this inept, useless, uneducated, hateful muslim so-called pm, and still the traiteress msm still love this lying, stealing waste of a human being.
commented 2016-10-18 19:54:38 -0400
This is staged – Fuckwad Trudeau puts up some song and dance and the ewn-yuns fight with him and then Fuckwad Trudeau gives up a ton to make peace – and then his blind trust receives a massive kickback.

Ewn-yuns run Canada – until stupid fucking Canadians wake the hell up – take a look at Detroit = the work of ewn-yuns.

Oh how convenient for Justin!

PSAC will bark and Justin will eventually give in and spend billions in new contracts.
The man-child has no respect for taxpayers and is spending/wasting money at an unprecedented rate!

This little peice of shit will single handedly destroy Canada… and his CUCK supporters will cheer.

Canada is a joke. There is an unprecedented level of mental retardation, laziness, apathy,
sheer ignorance and stupidity running amok in Canada.

Communist social justice losers are slowly restricting freedom of speech.

Yes, union groups and business groups are upset with trudeau.. that’s a given… but in addition, anti-Semitic groups were already upset with him re: BDS condemnation, and environmentalists feel betrayed. Other than the MSM who assisted to installed him into power, I cannot think of any group that is happy with him, except insiders who have their snouts in the trough.

The unions want payback in their paychecks and we don’t have the money.
