    Right To Work No Thanks - by Eugene Plawiuk, Anarkismo.net 
    What needs to be done in Alberta is One Big Union of all workers, an end to craft/trade and competing union organizations. Since the orginal Canadian OBU began here in Alberta it makes sense that it should rise again from the ashes during this labour crisis.

    Then we could build the General Strike to overthrow capitalism and its state. I don't think that is quite what Frau Francis had in mind though.
