Ontario’s Labour movement cannibalizes itself over mismanagement and greed

Sid Ryan was at the forefront of radicalizing unions so that rather than concentrating on workers’ rights, he was pushing them into hateful political causes, like the “Occupy” movement, and partnerships with a variety of fanatical anti-Israel groups and anti-capitalist/class warfare extremists that provided no benefit to union workers. Because of a personal dispute over money he feels he is owed from the Ontario Federation of Labour, Ryan wrote on the facebook post reprinted below that;

The days when union leaders can make decisions behind closed doors and not be held fully accountable for those decisions are over. “

    Sounds like a porn star.

    and to hell with the taxpayers

    • “The days when union leaders can make decisions behind closed doors and not be held fully accountable for those decisions are over. “

      Really Mr. Ryan? Then why did you support the spending of a small fortune on ads for “Working Families” which specifically demonized that sort of Union reform proposed by Tim Hudak during the Ontario election? He was demonized to the degree that he dropped it from his platform and it’s unlikely that any other Candidate will pursue Union reform again. You’re a fake and a hypocrite Mr. Ryan. And I suspect you are also a thief.

        couple lived next door to me were both in CUPE union management
        big time Dippers
        they despised Ryan … a bully and a liar..especially towards women

        couple was very nice.. i stumped them every time with pointed Dipper hypocricy examples.
        .. still email them Justine , Trump 2016 pics

        • Unionists like Buzz Hargrove were more diplomatic and approachable (at least in his old age). Plus Buzz believed in free speech and could take conservative criticism without going berserk.

          Lucky me with Ryan down the street. But my dog for some weird reason insists on dumping on his lawn.

      Also to hell with dues paying union members. The Conservatives took a small step of forcing the unions to show where the members’ money was spent, and Trudeau ended that requirement.

        Justine will cost us unknown $$billions

        • Linda1000

          Very profound, no? 🙂 Think this is an oldie pic below.

        • Shebel

          Justin makes decisions and doesn’t care what they cost. He is a Liberal.

          • Alain

            He doesn’t make decisions, he does what his handlers (puppeteers) tell him to do.

  • Ryan has always been despicable and self-serving. And don’t forget that Ryan’s biggest apologist on Christian TV when he made blatantly anti-Semitic remarks (“all Jewish University professors should be fired”) was MICHAEL COREN — the biggest pseudo-intellectual in Canada. Did Coren even graduate High School? His father was a fat ass lazy British cab driver who never aspired to anything else.

    • Alain

      I remember that just as I remember Coren admitting that his own sister won’t speak to him. No wonder she wants nothing to do with him.

    • mauser 98

      i posses 10 billion times more knowledge about ME politics than Ryan has

    • Shebel

      Leave Michael Coren alone and stop being a whiner. He has the ability to think for himself. What is wrong with that ?

      • mauser 98

        NOW Magazine? whines about every gay hangnail
        Coren now posessed

        • Clink9

          That guy’s about as sharp as his bald head.

          • Shebel

            haha— You guys sure don’t like Mike.
            He left the Catholic Church which was probably a good idea since that fucking Pope Francis is a Traitor to the Faith and the Western World.
            He joined the United Church—-that is a mystery to me.
            Anyway— For me .— Why should I care . I am just a bit pissed that Coren by-passed we Presbyterians.

      • I was suspicious of Coren even when he was an “eloquent” apologist for Christians on Christian TV. When I listened to his arguments they often didn’t make sense to me — most of the time a mish-mash of unsupported disconnected statements that sounded “intellectual” because he used his air of British superiority to talk down to Canadians. I also got sick of him referring to his father the taxi driver as evidence that he’s just a regular working class Joe. I don’t think Coren has ever handled a pick or shovel or sledge hammer in his life.

        And I’ll never forget when he repeatedly stated that Latin American culture practices “honour killings”. A total crock of s**t. As if to objectify or diminish the significance of honour killings in Islam.

        As far as me being a “whiner” I don’t know what you mean — I’m not Jewish and have no horse in the “anti-Semitic” race. I’m looking at the broader picture.

        • Shebel

          UMM HMMM—–

      • Justin St.Denis

        Dear Shebel, the problem is that Coren’s mind is somewhat unmoored, so ‘thinking for himself’ has resulted in so many about-faces that many find Coren without credibility and rather tiring. There is nothing wrong with that.

        • Shebel

          You are correct. There is nothing wrong with that.
          You have judged Mr. Coren . I have not been following this ‘unmooring’ – so I will Not judge him.
          I sure would enjoy hearing him defend himself.
          It is only fair.

  • Waffle

    Quelle surprise! Eaten by his own.

  • Shebel

    The olde days are gone . Unions no longer care about the workers . They care about the Politicians that help build their Corporations.

  • Millie_Woods

    Unions are the gateway drug to socialism.

  • Shebel

    Unions are the Corporations of the Future and will be sanctioned by the likes of Justin and the UN. A ‘façade of capitalism—-

  • andycanuck

    Syd? Isn’t he Michael Coren’s good buddy?

  • Maggat

    Looks good on ’em.

  • B.HusseinNoBama

    Sid Ryan is an Anti-Semitic communist. MIchael Coren gave him a nice platform to spew his pro-Chavez, anti-Israel venom over on CTS. That was when I dumped Coren. I knew he was a self-serving fraud then.
