can't you come up with a better argument than that?

it’s disingenuous for education minister shirley bond to suggest that because the teacher strike vote (of 90.5% in favour of defying bill 12 and staying out on strike) was only cast by 50% of the members, the result is not legitimate (and thus scabbing should be supported) – when she (and everyone) knows full well that the us president is elected with voter turn-outs of 50% and less, and canadian voter turn-out is only marginally better. by her logic, if the results of the bctf strike vote are not legitimate, than neither are the provincial and federal governments (and hey, i would concede labour legitimacy if it meant getting the corporate-lackey crowd out of the legislature).
