OPSEU Walks-Out On Autistic Children!

Warren “Smokey” Thomas, Curiously Named President of OPSEU

I wrote about OPSEU local 330’s labour dispute a few weeks ago, and how they were suggesting the use of riot gear against autistic children. Honestly, this was one of the most disturbing stories about the labour movement I’ve heard of in years. Well, it seems the problem is now getting worse…

What’s Going Wrong With The Student Fee Protests?

Anarchists or concerned students?

It was another beautiful day for a demonstration- the sun was shining and was mercifully accompanied by a cool soothing breeze. Spirits were high when I arrived on the scene. There was a small contingent of police- less than usual, I’m guessing this was related to Prince Charles’ visit…

Ryerson Professor Winnie Ng Suports Notable Con-Artist Kevin Annett!

Winnie Ng

We have a new actor to discuss in the International Socialist’s cast-of-characters. Today I introduce to you Winnie Ng, a professor at Ryerson University who currently holds the chair for the CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy. Winnie’s seat was previously held by, darling of the Black Bloc Judy Rebick!

The deeper I research into these people, the more it seems to me they are involved in a sinister conspiracy to take advantage of Canada’s indigenous communities…

May 1st, Hour 1: Assaulted By Dave Vasey & Greg Cipryk! (With Special Guest- Judy Rebick!)

“Copsickles” gathered waiting at Bay & Kings St W.

So, here I am covering the events of Occupy Toronto’s May Day celebrations- live and on the spot! I started waiting at Bay & King Street where the ‘Human’ chess game was announced, but it turned-out to be a decoy.

Why Is A Regional VP At OPSEU Making Videos About Free Trade?

Perhaps I’m missing something here- but how does free trade affect the members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union? Shouldn’t Dave Lundy be busy representing his members rather than representing a partisan political issue like this?

OPSEU Backs The Use of Riot Gear On Autistic Children!

Warren "Smokey" Thomas - President of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union

The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) has backed Education Assistants using martial arts blocker shields to control their autistic students. Seriously folks, this is probably the most disturbing story I’ve heard all year!

Is York Professor David McNally (Former Head of the International Socialists) a Black Bloc Ringleader?

 
Remember I questioned how curious it was for the CBC to be using a professor from the ultra-radical York University as an expert on Black Bloc during the G20? Well, it seems my Spidey senses were right…

If There Is Violence On May 1st- Blame These People…

This list reads like a who’s who of the International Socialists! Is this why they would be foolish enough to add their support to a dodgy event being sponsored by No One Is Illegal? After all, NoII is one of the most pro Black Bloc organizations in the country- isn’t it? Continue reading

Why I’m Stepping Down From The Occupy Movement…

I Block Occupy Becoming a Marxist/Leninist Movement

I joined the Occupy movement with a dream. Occupy had a chance to change the world and make it better for everyone- unfortunately, this opportunity was lost.

The Occupy movement was labelled as the 99% vs the 1% but this is not entirely true. Now, six months later, it is obvious to me that Occupy was corrupted from the beginning. In reality, it was a battle of the 5% vs the 95%. Let me explain…

Occupy Toronto Has A Black Bloc Problem…

Black Bloc Marching At Occupy Toronto's Police Violence March Last Friday

When I arrived at Occupy Toronto I was told that “there are no Black Bloc at OT.” Being someone who gives the benefit of doubt, I accepted this- that said, it didn’t take long before I saw this was not true…

Has OPSEU’s Large Yurt (formerly of Occupy Toronto) Been Torched By an Arsonist?

One of the yurts that was 'donated' by OPSEU

I remember reading about Occupy Toronto’s yurts back when they were “donated” last year. One part of me was envious- where were Occupy Vancouver’s yurts! That said, it made sense to donate them to Occupy Toronto, as they definitely needed it for the city’s colder weather!
