Canada: Toronto Garbage Strike Raises a Stink

By Larry Habegger | Permalink | No Comments | July 1st, 2009 | Trackback

A strike by 24,000 municipal workers in Toronto shut down parks, recreation programs, ferry service and garbage collection June 22. The strike entered its second week with negotiations continuing but no end in sight. Meanwhile, garbage was piling up around bins and residents were dumping their trash at 19 temporary dump sites, including city parks. Residents living near the sites complained of the stench and visitors were surprised to see the mounds of trash throughout the city that is known for its cleanliness. But Toronto’s problem may be smaller than what Windsor, Ontario is facing: a similar strike there just entered its twelfth week.
