It is interesting that the Conservatives are attacking Brian Topp for being friendly to unions. It just underscores the Conservatives utter lack of concern for working people or the conditions under which they work. Unions have played the most crucial role in the elevation of the working class to something resembling middle class standing, and for the elevation of workplace safety. But, this matters not one whit to the Harperites. It is quite evident that the Harperites would rather have workers represented by no one, so they could enjoy all the benefits of those lucky enough to be working in factories in China.
Update: As Pogge points out, there are other, more legitimate, things to criticize Topp for. It goes to show that union bashing takes precedence over democratic values for the Harperites.
Update: With news like this, perhaps the Harperites should explain why we don't need unions.
