    Hurried vote on labour code feels like Tory revenge - Lorne Gunter, Calgary Herald
    It's hard not to think, as unions have claimed, that the Tories' changes were provoked by the unions' ad campaign in this spring's provincial election encouraging voters to throw the government out. The amendments in Bill 26 were payback for the building trades unions, nurses, health care workers, provincial civil servants and Alberta Federation of Labour spending more and doing more than the opposition parties, combined, to unseat the Stelmach government.

    The unions spent an estimated $2 million on their Tories-have-no-plan ads and so the Tories responded by adopting labour-code changes advocated for years by the unions' nemesis, the Merit Contractors' Association, an industry organization for non-union construction companies.
