As I seem to recall, pickets are generally done on, or in, the entrance way of the employer, and not disrupting traffic flow on public thoroughfares. Big difference!

Try picketing on Hwy97 blocking traffic flow, then see what happens.

"zookeeper"


Picketing is a common tactic used by trade unions during strikes, if the RCMP are going to start to arrest natives then they should arrest teachers, health care workers, CUPE members..... :127:

Do you not recall the Teachers were not aloud to stop or impede the flow of traffic on Hwy 97 last year?

It is against the law.


Let's not forget unions have a habit of blocking the property they work on, not roads and rails ways to block the general public from getting to their work places. These people are about making all Canadians pay for what they believe is their losses even tho they Don't work for it. They should not block those wanting to go to their work place and their homes...

Did y'all hear about the woman they blocked off the other day? She had to wait five months for an appointment with I believe a specialist, missed her appointment and will now have to wait five more months,,, it could mean a difference between life and death for her not to have a proper diagnosis that long and a proper treatment plan. They are not fighting a work place here, they are fighting for more coverage and are affecting all other needs of others not even related to their issue, this could cause a lot of serious problems for people cos they don't care.

They want to affect the public in general hoping for our support... It's not the way to do this, they are interfering with all aspects of the general public, medical, our need to keep food on our tables, people trying to fetch their kids from a day care,,, going to a parents home to care for them,,,, an emergency road trip,,, you name it, they are hitting us where it counts. We are not their enemy they should block a road to the gov building in Ottawa or their own roads. Or,,,, picket on the side of a road and let traffic happen as it should. Nothing like screaming "I Want or you don't go anywhere"

As far as I'm concerned, if they keep up this stupidity, all it's going to do is lose them more people, that might otherwise have still had some sympathy for their cause.

Simply put shooting themselves in the foot, and apparently they haven't figured that out yet.

That video looked prit near riot level,,, they shoulda been taken away once they hit her truck.
They need to move off the road and try to gain supporters by holding signs or beating their drums,,,

Maybe we should start road blocks to get them cut off,,, wouldn't they like that!
