CUPE shames itself

I'm not the biggest fan of CUPE to begin with, but this: http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=1144758 is simply shameful. While criticism of Israeli foreign policy can be legitimate, this move by CUPE crosses a clear line that all liberal (note the small-l) minded individuals should reject as an attack on free speech and freedom of the mind.

I agree. CUPE's move is unduly coercive, to say the least.

Shame is right! What a bunch of no-brain idiots.

I congratulate you swimming against the current of your ilk. I'm no fan of unions as a rule, but the CUPE is a discraceful example about how far from their mandate they have really strayed.
