Recently career politician Pierre Poilievre Conservative MP for the riding of Nepean-Carleton proposed that we all jump in our time machines and travel back to 1946 to reverse the Rand decision. His reason, some of his constituents have complained to him about a public sector union's political activity. Poilievre can often be counted on for knee jerk reactions that over simplify complicated issues and this case is no different.
A more reasoned response would be to recognize that unions are democratic organizations where the leadership is elected by the members. And like all democracies
- not all members actively participate i.e. vote
- not all members agree with the outcome of the vote
