In light of Burger King’s recent acquisition of Tim Hortons, economic and political pundits on both sides of the border have been debating about the motivation of this $12.5-billion takeover. In reality, there is no debate since it is clear that the deal — accompanied by the relocation of Burger King’s headquarters to Canada — is all about dodging taxes and increasing profits for the bosses while workers get left behind.

As summer draws to an end, it appears that so is the Liberals’ generosity towards Ontario’s public-sector workers. In order to maintain their hold on power at Queen’s Park earlier this summer, Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals made all sorts of overtures to the province’s labour movement, promising that the new Liberal government would treat labour with respect and raise workers’ standards of living, unlike Tim Hudak and the Conservatives — and unlike the Liberal governments of the past 11 years.

The Communist Manifesto opens with the lines, "A spectre is haunting Europe." Over 160 years later it appears that the spectre of Marxism is as potent as ever, with supporters and detractors increasing daily. Why is it that an old German philosophy student, buried over 100 years ago in Highgate cemetery in London, excites such controversy? In fact, Marxism reveals the truth about their system, capitalism, and they must do whatever is necessary to hide this fact from the mass of the people — especially the workers and youth.

The province’s 40,000 teachers remain on strike, locked out, or both, depending on whom you ask. The provincially-appointed mediator, Vince Ready, walked out on negotiations over the weekend claiming that the sides were “too far apart”. With no end in sight to the dispute, it is clear that the BC government has no interest in negotiating and is looking to hammer teachers.
