One unexpected side effect of the on going transit strike: all the horrible drivers out on the road. It does seem, more than normal, that a lot of people driving around don't really know what they're doing. Not signalling, not knowing what lane to be in, stopping short, etc.
There seems to be no end in sight for this strike. Here's the latest on the main sticking point: scheduling. And there are potentially a bunch of other strikes on the horizon: Halifax Water Commission, Oland Brewery, and Dalhousie, to name a few - and that's just locally.
My mom, no stranger to striking herself after 6 months of it about a decade ago, told me about this someecard. So true.
