Transit strike in Halifax

Well the transit union today got a offer from the Halifax Regional Municipality the offer looks good. The transit union in my opinion is just greedy wanting more and more money. Its not fair to the people of Halifax to rely on transit buses to get from place to place. Here in Pictou County we used to have transit here but that was taken away. Now, the same thing is happening in Halifax.

Halifax Mayor Peter Kelly again rejected any idea of sending the contract dispute to binding arbitration. Here's what he said:

"Taxpayers can't bear much more than we've already offered them. No more than we already offered. We thought what we offered was more than fair," Kelly told reporters Friday afternoon.

Does the Transit Union care about the taxpayers of Halifax it certainly doesn't look like it. It's sad really it had to go like this. I know their are some people in Halifax who support the Transit Union's decision I really don't know how they could.
