Bring Back Slavery!, Part 2

Okay, so I said some mean things a couple days ago about how we needed to bring back slavery. And I was right!

Check out this new aspect of the back-to-work legislation which, predictably, the government of Ontario pushed into place this weekend:

Any TTC worker who does not comply with the legislation faces a fine of $2,000 for each day that he or she stays off the job.


OK. I get it. It's "freedom and democracy." If you don't show up to work, we will fine you!

The Church of the Orange Sky repeats the urgent need of all Canadians to immediately investigate options for creating a permanent underclass of slaves who have no rights, so that we can safely oppress them without having to worry about the fact that at the moment we're using the power of the state to violate basic human rights simply for the convenience of having an easy way to travel around the city.

Charter of Rights and Freedoms? What's that?
