    Christmas cheer on picket line - by Shaw Mullin, Owen Sound, Ontario
    29 year Goodyear veteran Vern Dyer says it's very generous and every last worker appreciates the meals.

    But moments earlier Dyer and several other workers surrounded a van holding replacement or 'scab' workers.

    They were shouting at the replacements to reveal themselves - and Dyer says they're upset at the scabs for doing their jobs while they're fighting to keep the work in Canada.
