http://www.canada.com/calgaryherald/new ... 95a6d47a88During the past week, Sid Ryan has been called a bigot, ignorant, an idiot, frightening, a disgrace and, well, the list goes on. So let me say one good thing about the president of Ontario's arm of the Canadian Union of Public Employees: he doesn't give up.
Ryan has announced that CUPE will seek to ban Israeli academics from speaking, teaching or research work at Ontario universities if they do not explicitly condemn Israel's action in Gaza. With this measure, Ryan makes it clear that he refuses to give up on his quest to make his increasingly impotent union relevant (not relevant to workers, just relevant to something in the news) and he intends to continue to use his union position as a platform to target Israel. In 2006, he infamously led CUPE to boycott Israeli goods and denounce its "apartheid wall."
There is reference to CUPW which as many of you may know, was the loudest drum a past poster used to pound upon. I wonder if psycho-boy has any input on his site. I may go visit, just for old times sake.
