    B.C. unions may see Olympics as bargaining chip - CTV.ca
    Timing is working in the unions' favour this spring, says Ken Thornicroft, a former labour arbitrator and a business professor at the University of Victoria.

    'You are going to see a significant amount of co-ordination with the public-sector unions,' he said. 'There is the potential for a very significant shutdown, lawfully as opposed to unlawfully. The government is under maybe more of the gun this time around, because they are obviously looking towards 2010.'

    Campbell's Liberals will also be seeking a third term in 2009.
