    Sweatshop on wheels - By JOE HENDRY, NOW Magazine, Toronto
    Tired of riding on the beaten path and after what they describe as years of government neglect of their health and safety concerns, smog chief among them, Toronto's 500-plus bike messengers are talking about joining thousands of others across the country in a unionizing drive.

    Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) national rep Valère Tremblay says the union, which is organizing couriers in 36 cities, hopes to "provide messengers with a grievance procedure" to address the government's neglect in the enforcement of employment standards in the industry.
