Liberals across Ontario will be targeted by 225,000 members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees in the October provincial election, union leader Sid Ryan said Thursday.
Union members are upset by cuts in the education sector, including fewer school custodians and educational assistants, Ryan, the president of CUPE Ontario, said in Toronto on Thursday.
It's interesting to compare this against Buzz Hargrove's endorsement. Buzz Hargrove has made it no secret he hates everything conservative, which at the best of times seems somewhat misguided (Mr. Hargrove seems to want to campaign against progressive industry and business policies [PDF]), right down to the completely bizarre.
It's interesting because it seems that Mr. Hargrove's endorsement is based upon a view of what the province should do for General Motors, and Mr. Ryan's criticism is based upon a view of what the province should do for education.
