    Blue collars fined $1.16M for strike - By Andy Riga, The Gazette (Montreal)
    It may go down as the most expensive traffic jam in Montreal history.

    A Quebec Superior Court judge has ordered Montreal’s blue-collar-worker’s union to pay $1.16 million in damages for inconveniencing drivers during a wild, three-hour illegal strike in Old Montreal four years ago.

    On the morning of Sept. 17, 2003, more than 300 blue-collar workers angry about the city’s contract offer converged on Montreal city hall. From across the island, they arrived in 150 city-owned vehicles – fork lifts, sidewalk cleaners, dump trucks and vans. They honked horns and blocked several streets, paralyzing the area bounded by St. Laurent Blvd., Viger Ave. and Berri and de la Commune Sts.
