Honestly.  I don't have a high opinion of Convervative intellectual ability, but this really takes the cake.

The Harper Government is jubilant because they have passed Back-To-Work legislation that will force the Canada Post employees to go back to work:

Excuse me?

The Canada Post Employees have been LOCKED OUT for over a week.  If Canada Post chooses not to open its doors to its employees, are the employees in breach of law because they cannot cross the threshhold?

Prior to the LOCK OUT, Canada Post employees had been using rotating strikes, that hardly even went so far as to actually, you know, *inconvenience* anyone.  The jerk-a-zoid legislation, this kind of over-the-top, brain-damaged posturing and bullying, is as repulsive as it is stupid.

DUH.

Oh golly - maybe the over-the-top, bad-movie over-reaction to simple events[1] *is* a Canadian characteristic.  Yay. 

[1] - burning cars at Stanley Cup riots - *burning cars?* - be serious; legislating back-to-work over postal service rotating strikes - *legislation?* - be serious.
